Why Use Scholarship@Claremont (The Claremont Colleges Institutional Repository) when I have a ResearchGate or Academia.edu profile?
ResearchGate and Academia.edu are primarily academic social networking platforms. They are commercial sites whose aim is to connect researchers with common interests, much like LinkedIn. Scholarship@Claremont is a library-maintained institutional repository whose aim is to provide access, long-term preservation, and a central point for Claremont Colleges scholarship and creative works.
Both academic social networking sites and institutional repositories have their place in scholarly communication. They serve different purposes and you should carefully evaluate the differences between networking sites and Scholarship@Claremont
Recommendation: Submit your full-text document to Scholarship@Claremont and link to it from a social networking site. This will ensure a stable link and best preservation practices for your scholarship.
