ResearchGate and Akadémiai Kiadó announce new Journal Home partnership

ResearchGate, the professional network for researchers, and Akadémiai Kiadó (AK),Hungary’s oldest continuously operating publishing house and a leading scientific publisher in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced a new partnership that will enhance the reach and visibility for a group of AK journals through ResearchGate’s innovative Journal Homeoffering.

AK was founded to promote international and Hungarian science, supporting information exchange on a global level. The new partnership will enable AK to connect with highly relevant new and existing audiences of authors and readers. All version-of-record article content from the initial participating journals, including archive content and new articles on publication, will be available on ResearchGate – boosting readership and engagement through ResearchGate’s 25m+ researcher members. 

Dedicated journal profiles will be activated on the platform, providing key information and content from the journals, as well as uniquely enabling ResearchGate members to explore how their own network connects to a journal. The journals will also be prominently featured on all associated articles and touchpoints throughout the ResearchGate network, enhancing visibility for readers and potential authors. AK authors will additionally benefit from their articles being automatically added to their user profiles on ResearchGate – providing them with stats and insights on their articles usage and presenting a unique way for these authors to understand and connect with their readers.

“AK is committed to making scientific results as widely read and shared as possible. We’re excited to partner with ResearchGate and use Journal Home‘s unique presentation and insights to enhance our global visibility,” said Erna Sári, Head of Marketing.

“We’re thrilled to see another regional publisher increase their global visibility through Journal Home,” said Sören Hofmayer, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at ResearchGate. “Our highly relevant researcher community offers publishers a new way to reach new readers for their journals, and provides unique insights into how a community connects with a journal.”
