ResearchGate and University of California Press announce new Journal Home partnership

ResearchGate, the professional network for researchers, and University of California Press (UC Press), one of the most forward-thinking scholarly publishers, today announced that five UC Press journals will now benefit from increased authorship and readership through ResearchGate’s innovative Journal Home offering. The five journals cover a mixture of open access, hybrid, and subscription titles in environmental sciences/studies, music, and international relations.

UC Press has a long history of delivering innovative programs and initiatives to enhance the global impact of research. Through Journal Home, the version-of-record for nearly 5,000 articles, including both backfile content and all newly published articles, will be made available on ResearchGate as soon as they are published. This includes easier access to subscription content for entitled readers on the platform. Dedicated journal profiles will further help to boost the visibility of participating titles, providing key information and content from the journals, as well as uniquely enabling ResearchGate members to explore how their own community is connected to a journal. 

Authors in the participating journals will also benefit from having their articles automatically added to their ResearchGate profiles. This provides a unique opportunity to gain insights about who is reading and citing their work. 

“We’re delighted to be offering Journal Home as an additional service to authors on these journals,” said Journals Publisher, David Famiano. “ResearchGate provides UC Press with a unique opportunity to connect directly with researchers in the process of doing their work, in a way that will foster increased engagement and expand our community of readers and authors.” 

“UC Press have time and again demonstrated their commitment to implement new approaches and shape the future of publishing,” said Sören Hofmayer, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at ResearchGate. “Journal Home’s network capabilities present a unique opportunity for UC Press to deepen their connections and understanding of relevant researcher communities through ResearchGate’s 25 million active researcher members. I’m excited to see the results from this collaboration!”
