(18 Oct 2021) ResearchGate and Hindawi Limited today announced a new agreement that will make all articles published in Hindawi’s open access journals available directly on the ResearchGate platform upon publication.
The partnership, which launched on October 14, 2021, will also see the published version of all 290k+ articles from across Hindawi’s portfolio of 230+ gold open access journals fully accessible on ResearchGate by the end of 2021.
This partnership aims to accelerate the discovery of research by making published articles readily available on the ResearchGate platform, which has more than 55 million unique visitors per month. It builds on Hindawi’s commitment to working collaboratively with the research community to maximize the reach, impact, and visibility of published work.
Hindawi is the first publisher to have all its content available on the platform. Research and education leader Wiley, which acquired Hindawi in January 2021, launched its own pilot with 18 gold open access journals earlier this year. Positive feedback on the Wiley pilot from authors and ResearchGate members informed the decision to make Hindawi journals accessible on the platform. Additional Wiley journals will also be added in the upcoming second phase of the Wiley pilot, planned to launch in the coming months.
