Launched in 2008, Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share research papers. The company's mission is to accelerate the world's research.
An innovative directory of academics and researchers. It intends to provide free access to a database of information about academic researchers and departments in colleges worldwide. These are displayed in a 'tree diagram effect' showing affiliations. Individual records include research interests and information on projects. It is possible to search by department or research interests. The site relies heavily on self registration, therefore users should be aware that information may not be comprehensive.
All areas of the humanities, sciences and social sciences are covered.
