It is used primarily to share publications among researchers and fellow scientists. If you register on the website, you can view these publications. As an example, if you are looking up an article using the MV library databases and you find that the article is not full-text, you could use Research Gate to see if it is available. Traditional interlibrary loan can take longer (up to a week), but with ResearchGate there is possibility of instant access.
