The American Psychological Association (APA) and ResearchGate have entered a partnership aimed at amplifying the reach and discoverability of APA’s journals by providing ResearchGate members with direct access to their articles through the platform.

APA's collection of peer-reviewed journals span the breadth and depth of psychology, many published in partnership with APA’s specialty divisions and other national and international psychological organisations. As a ResearchGate partner, APA will provide access to more than 5,000 new articles a year, as well as backfile content of more than 300,000 articles.  

Authors of the articles included in this partnership will have their content automatically added to their profiles on ResearchGate, giving them easy access to statistics that showcase the impact of their work and providing an opportunity for them to connect with their readers.

“APA is pleased to work with ResearchGate to extend the reach and impact of our journals," said Michael Cairns, Head of Partner and Channel Development at APA Publishing. "This collaboration will enhance the reach of our content and further connect our journals with a highly relevant and engaged researcher audience, ultimately advancing the field of psychology."

“We are thrilled to partner with APA Publishing to bring their esteemed journals to ResearchGate’s engaged researcher community,” said Sören Hofmayer, co-founder and chief strategy officer at ResearchGate. “This partnership offers readers and authors increased access to authoritative publisher content. As a publisher whose portfolio is almost entirely subscription-based, this collaboration demonstrates that ResearchGate can offer publishers an innovative way to grow the visibility and usage of their journals with entitled users, as well as providing enhanced services to their authors.”
