Academicians can share their academic studies at Academia, ResearchGate, use Hubzero, myExperiment while doing research, and share documents with Slideshare, Scribd, Cloud Storage Services. Researchers also make use of various management software, bookmark managers and citation indexes while preparing their bibliographies.

For example, Mendeley and Zotero are a few examples of bibliographic reference management software. While researchers use social bookmark managers such as Diigo and Delicious, they also use citation indexes such as Google Scholar Citations and Microsoft Academic Research in their academic studies.

By sharing the research results on online academic platforms, it not only increases the recognition of the academician, but also provides more citations from his academic studies.

Social Tagging

Thanks to social tagging, known as social bookmarking, researchers can record the pages they visit so they can access those pages later. Social tagging sites used by researchers include CiteUlike (researchers can tag resources such as books, publications, articles with keywords and add them to their individual libraries.) and BibSonomy (BibSonomy, on the other hand, functions as a bookmark and publication sharing system).
