ResearchGate, the professional network forresearchers, and Optica Publishing Group, the largest publisher of peer-reviewed optics and photonics content, have announced that all Optica Publishing Group’s wholly owned subscription and open access journals are now available through ResearchGate’s Journal Home offering. 

As part of this partnership, the Version of Record of all new published articles from these journals will be made available immediately on the ResearchGate platform as well as close to 105,000 additional published articles dating back to 2012. The journals will also benefit from enhanced visibility through dedicated journal profiles on ResearchGate and prominent journal branding on associated article pages as well as all other relevant touchpoints with ResearchGate’s 25m+ active researchers. 

Authors will also benefit from their research in these journals being automatically added to their profiles on ResearchGate, providing insights into who is reading and citing their work. Journal Home’s network insights further help authors and journal editors to better understand how researchers are connected to a journal. Connected editors and authors ar ediscoverable through the journals’ profiles, providing a new way to connect with the journal community.

“We are pleased to be offering this new service to our authors through our partnership with ResearchGate,” said Elizabeth Nolan, Deputy Executive Director and Chief Publishing Officer. “Journal Home not only helps us to better support our authors, but it also provides us with another avenue for making our optics and photonics research as widely accessible as possible. We look forward to seeing the results of this initiative.”

“Optica’s research is already the highest cited in optics and photonics, and we are excited to see them now extend their reach and visibility through ResearchGate,”said Sören Hofmayer, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at ResearchGate. “Journal Home will provide Optica with an excellent way to support their authors, while also providing them with greater insights about their community of readers globally.”
