Abstract: 
academic dissemination and communication play a great role in promoting scientific progress. Traditionally, most researchers disseminated their work through journal articles, books, and conference presentations. With the development of the Web 2.0, the emergence of social websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Wechat, provides an alternative way to help researchers presenting their current work, opening views, personal skills, and expertise; meanwhile, followers can get the updated information by following their interested researchers. Although social websites were not very popular among researchers, researchers using social media could obtain several benefits, especially for the ability to communicate quickly.

ResearchGate,一种促进高被引学者学术传播的有效方法?

概要:为了探索学术社交网站对高被引学者的学术传播的作用,本研究引入了年度总引文增长率(K)的概念.基于2017年9月13日到9月23日从ResearchGate(RG)和Scopus网站获取的数据对高被引学者的发文量、逐年引用次数、h指数和RG网站注册情况使用独立样本t检验和单因素方差分析进行统计学分析.结果表明,2014~2016年期间,高被引学者的RG网站注册情况与K值的相关性具有统计学意义,并且注册RG的高被引学者的K值下降趋势会有一年的延迟.因此本文认为,注册RG的高被引学者在本研究的统计时间内更多地参与了学术推广和传播活动,而RG至少是这些传播活动的一种媒介.我们鼓励所有学者、研究机构以及学术期刊更加注重学术成果的传播,包括在RG网站上登记研究人员的信息,在不侵犯原文版权的情况下上传"在线"论文,分享研究成果并与其他研究人员开展讨论.这些活动都将提高研究成果的被检索、阅读和引用的可能性.
