I get bombarded with you have been cited  notices
in one of my email accounts.  Then I received a half
off subscription email.  This is so common these
days, so I checked into it and share…
Is Academia Edu legit?
It is not. It is a for profit site, who managed to register the “edu”
domain name. They will take your papers (submitted for free)
then sell access to those papers to other people. They also
bombard you with “you have been cited x times” emails but
then you are blocked from seeing who cited you until you pay
a fee.
