Introduction to Groups

Last Updated: Jun 15, 2015 11:28AM BST

Groups are designed to be collaborative spaces for researchers and academics to get together, exchange knowledge and conduct research. When a group is created, all members get access to a shared library and shared drive (5GB), which can be used to spread citation information and data files respectively within that group.


Utilizing the group's news feed, all users can:

  • Post updates and comments

  • Share files, links and equations for discussion

  • Stay updated with all activities

Group limits:

There are none. You can create unlimited groups and add unlimited members. If you want to increase your group's shared drive space, see here.

Group types:

Groups can be Open (anyone can join), Closed (only invited people can join, but the Group is shown publicly) or Secret (only invited people can join, and the Group is not shown publicly).

Group member statuses:

The different membership categories of people in the Group are: Admin (has full rights to modify all Group content), Moderator (can access all content and has rights to manage and review all group content) and Member (has limited rights for access and can edit their own content).
