ResearchGate “confirmation” of citations? WTF?
February 19, 2014
ResearchGate is, as you are undoubtedly aware, the latest and most annoying version of “The Facebook/LinkedIn for Scientists™”.
I just noticed that they have some sort of request for you to “confirm” that your publication indeed cited their publication.
What POSSIBLE goal does this serve? I mean, just look at the damn paper! Did it cite yours? Yes/No. Done.
