"We know many UC San Diego researchers use ResearchGate to collaborate and share information. However, most of the publisher agreements you sign do specify that the publisher PDF versions of articles should not be posted online.
But you can upload your final accepted manuscripts into eScholarship, and then post those links into ResearchGate. The eScholarship versions of your articles are stable, and are legally free to the world to read. Depositing into eScholarship also meets the “open access repository” criterion of the UC Open Access Policies, while ResearchGate is NOT an open access repository."
