Selv-archiving repositories: Is ResearchGate the solution?

Eh, sorry, don’t know why I always think “Corporation” and not “Cooperative"… I might have listened too much to Thievery Corporation recently..
just wanted to point you to Mendeley (http://www.mendeley.com), of which I’m a co-founder.
On Mendeley’s profile pages researchers, academics, and students can automatically upload their papers (=self-archive, if you wish), via the desktop application, and they will get usage statistics back in turn.
Mendeley is free academic software (for Windows, Mac, and Linux) to manage & share your research papers and a research network to manage your papers online, discover research trends and connect to like-minded researchers.
I hope you find that useful, I would be happy to get some feedback!

Your blog is very interesting and the scientific content is really good, therefore, I would like to recommend you Redalyc, a website where you may find scientific information from and for Latin America, Spain and Portugal completely free. You may download scientific articles under the open access philosophy by entering to http://redalyc.uaemex.mx/

The problem with publication sharing is not of storage, but of copyright. Most articles published in academic journals cannot be legally made available this way.
For me the big minus in the ResearchGate model is that material is not searchable unless you are logged into their system. It would be nice to have a general storage area by categories, but it is too much like Facebook. I bet it will foster exactly the same type of behavior.
Should be “Open Anthropology Cooperative” - not “Corporation”
