There is actually an old ResearchGate question about this suggestion. – agold yesterday
Why would you prefer ResearchGate? They have a terrible reputation for shadiness and spamming. – MJeffryes yesterday 1
No. No, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not. Do not post your data set on a site that spams its user base. – JeffE yesterday
@JeffE: Could you explain more about the spamming, I'm intrigued to know. – Ébe Isaac yesterday 2
ResearchGate are a commercial company with no clear method so far for making money. At some point, they're going to make a grab and try to monetise whatever you do there, and it'll be a mess; there's no guarantee that your content will remain there or remain accessible. This is leaving aside the spamming problems that Jeff alludes to. – Andrew yesterday
