) popularization of using academicsocialnetworking sites (ASNs) ( Hailu, Mammo, & Ketema, 2016 ; Nentwich & König, 2014 ; Shrivastava & Mahajan, 2017 ). With these changes, scholars and their institutions are expected to adjust themselves. Social network sites (SNs) have been defined in a traditional sense as “web-based services that allow individuals to (1) construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, (2) articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and (3) view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others
ResearchGate (RG) is one of the most popular academic social media platforms currently available to scientists. Allowing scientists, researchers and academics (SRAs) to network through the creation of a free account. RG provides a virtually unlimited ability for SRAs to share research, contact each other through an integrated platform and share ideas. In recent times, projects have been increasing in scope and visibility, fortifying the RG network status. This paper examines some of the project-related features at RG and points out, within a wider examination of RG and other SRA-oriented academic social media platforms, the existing benefits and risks. The results of this work will allow SRAs to manage and invest their time in a better way.

review systems, the quotation and the comments, the openness to new perspectives. It is demonstrated by the success of
many social networks, starting from LinkedIn, Academia.Edu, Google Scholar, that are becoming more and more valid
The journal issue analyses these changes from different perspectives.
Giovanni Bonaiuti in “AcademicSocialNetworks: How the web is changing our way to make and communicate
researches” underlined how networking is not only essential for success in academia but it should also be seen as a
’s #-index ranking is 245/1000, with the latest publication year of 2015, then RP = 245/1000 = 0.245, RI = (1 – 0.245) × 0.95 2017-2015 = 0.681. Note that in practice, however, an expert’s H -index may not be easy to acquire. This problem can be solved by information provided by the expert’s funding agencies. For example, NSFC is collaborating with ScholarMate www.scholarmate.com to allow users to maintain their research resumes online. The data can be used to calculate H -indexes and construct academicsocialnetworks (used in the next subsection). 2.3 Academic
what is going on, link different bubbles together, and identify the similarities and differences between other bubbles. Finally, Daqing proposed the potential applications to the project. The technology can provide semantic-rich and more human-friendly representation about what is going on in different contexts. The other datasets could be developed, trained, and transferred to the social media domain. 3.3 Dan Wu: “Research on Cross-Cultural and Cross-Language Users in AcademicSocialNetwork and eHealth Social Media Context” Dan Wu's presentation is that to break

In this section, the report of the survey conducted to elicit the opinions
of respondents within and outside Africa on research assessments, JIF
and other metrifications being used is presented. A web-based survey
was conducted between 1st November and 5th December, 2018 using
Google Forms. In order to generate responses from as many individuals
as possible, the link to the survey was widely circulated
