Dear 100 Hour Board,

What's your opinion of ResearchGate?

-My Name Here


Dear Aziraphale,

Honestly, I really like the idea behind ResearchGate. It seems like an awesome place to go for research inspiration. However, according to the Wikipedia page on it, it seems like it has quite a few annoying problems. Because of that, I'm not sure that I would ever go to ResearchGate to look for collaborators on a paper. However, I'd definitely go to it to see what other people are getting into.

Finally, I just have to say how much I love how the people who use ResearchGate did analysis on the ResearchGate score given to each user. It makes me so happy inside to see how I'm not the only nerdy person in this world to conduct analysis on my own data and try and recreate different ranking algorithms.
