Elsevier supports a constructive and user-friendly solution the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM) has suggested to ResearchGate, enabling the scholarly collaboration network to operate its service consistent with the access and usage rights agreed between authors and the scientific journals in which they publish.
