A Progressive Development


ResearchGATE is a new free of charge web 2.0 platform designed for the need of researchers. With this new platform we want to change the world of science by providing a global and powerful scientific web-based environment, in which scientists can interact, exchange knowledge and collaborate with researchers of different fields.

Sign up and be part of the first scientific network.

present yourself and your research projects
enroll, expand, and broaden your science network globally
exchange know-how and expertise
initiate collaboration
discuss your research limitation and get positive feedback
use our innovative tools and work environments for online collaboration


A vision of Science 2.0 is promising: Instead of disseminating scientific results in regularly scheduled and printed journal issues, now a continuous release of articles in online format will change and expedite the way new results are spread. Without anonymous review processes, open access journals or wiki-like concepts will assure the quality of science. Hidden conglomerates of various interests will give way to transparent and traceable new concepts of scientific impact measurements. Science is collaboration, so scientific social networks, wikis and other means of collaboration will facilitate and improve the way scientists collaborate
