Academia.edu helps academics discover 'Who's researching what?'

Academia.edu is an example of a multidisciplinary social networking site for academics. It helps academics worldwide answer the question 'Who's researching what?'

  • You can find people with similar research interests to you
  • You can keep track of the latest developments in your research area - the latest papers, talks, blog posts and status updates
  • You can create an academic webpage, listing your research interests and any papers you have written.

Sample webpages:

http://oxford.academia.edu/RichardPrice
http://bournemouth.academia.edu/DimitriosBuhalis

As when adding your full text items to BURO (Bournemouth University Research Online), you must abide by your publisher copyright agreements.
