ResearchGate Profile up!

rgbannerI only recently discovered a site called ResearchGate, which is basically equivalent to a “Scientist Facebook”. It is a portal for all scientists to register all their publications, link it to other research, and follow other researchers and articles. It is a simple, yet great site for anyone who works in science, and it makes it follow topics, articles, and establish contact with others easier.

It is also a great way to promote your own research, with statistics showing the impact of your work, in terms of views, downloads, and citations.

I have created a profile, found here: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Espen_Sjoberg

In the future, it is possible that some download links will lead to ResearchGate rather than my profile, to save bandwith and to easier assess download rates.

This model has been researched extensively over the last 20 years or so, and is regarded as the leading animal model of ADHD.
