    Here is their http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ResearchGate" [Broken], note the section I highlighted below:
    It appears this http://www.researchgate.net/" is young (2010) has roots in Berlin, Germany and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Is anyone here using it ? If so is the search engine everything they claim it is ?

    Can I just call myself a scientist and join the site?

    I am not going to using it yet, not eligible as of now.

    I was hoping someone would be "fresh meat" and fill us in on the good, the bad of this site. I tend to shy away from these places. I haven't been able to get my LinkedIn account removed yet either. Need to contact those folks directly I guess. I would say try to sign up root and let us know if it is intrusive, or really worthwhile, delivering the goods so to speak as advertised.

    I am no good here. But personally so far I could sense any professionalism coming out of that site.

    I only use http://www.ieee.org/index.html" [Broken].
