) popularization of using academic social networking 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.

the grey materials, the 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 research tools. The journal issue analyses these changes from different perspectives. Giovanni Bonaiuti in “Academic Social Networks: 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 to allow users to maintain their research resumes online. The data can be used to calculate H -indexes and construct academic social networks (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 Academic Social Network and eHealth Social Media Context” Dan Wu's presentation is that to break
