Using LinkedIn, Google Scholar, and ResearchGate in Addition to Websites and Emails

Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Feb. 6, 2022)
For reporting my research works and for spreading the information widely, I have been using several means, just like many other people. In this page, I would like to summarize some of them, with emphasis on recent means, e.g., LinkedIn, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and YouTube.
(1) Website ("TRIZ Home Page in Japan") https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/
This Website is the principal media for me to publish, report, announce, communicate, etc. on my work since 1998. All the information mentioned below in (2) to (7) is based on the contents posted more closely in this Website. https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/ in English, https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/ in Japanese.
(2) Presentation/publication in Conferences and Journals
Official academic reports. I gave presentations at ETRIA TFC, TRIZCON (by Altshuller Institute), Japan TRIZ Symposium, JCS (Japan Creativity Society) Conference, etc. All the conferences published their Proceedings. In my Website, I have posted the papers (in HTML and in PDF) and presentation slides (in HTML or in PDF) both in English and in Japanese (in parallel a much as possible). I have several Journal papers which are also posted in the Website whenever allowed.
(3) Emails: Update Announcements and other communications
I have been sending emails for announcing the Website update (without fixed schedule of 1 to 4 weeks interval). Recently I use two forms, "TRIZ Home Page" Update Announcement and [WTSP] Letters, for sending to slightly different groups of readers (of nearly 200 persons each). If you want to subscribe them, please write an email to me for request.
(4) LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/
Social network service mostly for professionals in various fields. I have posted 47 articles ( in a page or so) so far concerning to the WTSP project, with short posting in the "TRIZ and Innovation" Group having 17,000+ members.
(5) Google Scholar: https://scholar.google.com/
Service for searching scholarly literature in any field in the world. Users need to be an author (or co-author) of any scholarly article (including patent) and to sign in with an institutional address. The system automatically collect scholarly articles from journals, conferences, books, reports, etc. and allows to survey them with author's name, citation, relevant articles, etc. Reference literatures are well collected for each researcher. This is an handy, useful system, but sometimes bothering because each researcher has published papers in different themes and there are many researcher having the initial such as "T. Nakagawa".
(6) ResearchGate: https://www.researchgate.net/
Similar to Google Scholar for the objectives; but accessible by readers without login, automatic collection of literature is rather weak, relying on author's uploading papers and their related documents, allowing 'projects' among authors in any specific topic. Thus I have just set up the following 3 projects and grouped my articles:
(a) TRIZ/USIT (start in Nov. 1998)
Goal: For further methodical development, applications, and proliferation of both TRIZ and USIT. TRIZ and USIT both have the aims at providing with systematic methods for creative (or innovative) problem solving. But they are quite a contrast: TRIZ has built big knowledge bases for the use in multiple passes of problem solving, while USIT intends to guide users to think in a simple, streamlined way without using handbooks or software tools. In Japan, we solved this contradictory situation by "integrating the big TRIZ into the simple USIT" to make USIT more effective while keeping it simple and easy to learn. We want to further in this direction in method development, application, teaching, proliferation, etc.
Nakagawa's website "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" is our platform. https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/ There you can read all the articles cited here and even more, both in English and in Japanese. Our new projects, CrePS (General Methodology for Creative Problem Solving) and WTSP (Catalogs of TRIZ and Around-TRIZ Websites in the World), are the extensions of this TRIZ/USIT project.
Hypothesis: By integrating the big TRIZ into the small USIT, we can have a simple, easy-to-learn, and effective method for creative problem solving.
(b) CrePS (General Methodology for Creative Problem Solving) (start in Sept. 2005)
Goal: Find a basic paradigm (or General Methodology) which can integrate various methods/methodologies of creative problem solving. The 'Six-Box Scheme' for Creative Problem Solving (i.e., for Innovation) is a good candidate, in contrast to the ordinary 'Four-Box Scheme of Abstraction' in Science & Technology. This is an extension of TRIZ/USIT project.
Nakagawa's website "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" is our platform for this project: https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/ There you can read all the articles cited here and even more, both in English and in Japanese.
Hypothesis: Basic paradigm for Innovation (or Creative Problem Solving) is NOT the basic paradigm of Science & Technology.
(c) WTSP (Catalogs of TRIZ and Around-TRIZ Websites in the World) (Start in Dec. 2017)
Goal: Collect, select, and describe good websites in the form of (interactive) Catalogs as a handy and reliable information resource of our (S&T) field. Starting at the TRIZ community, we wish to get various communities in the fields of Creative Problem Solving Methodologies (i.e., Around-TRIZ) involved. Let's make the current Beta Edition more useful and attractive. This project is an extension of our two projects: TRIZ/USIT and CrePS (General Methodology for Creative Problem Solving).
Nakagawa's website "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" (and its WTSP sub-site) is our platform for this project, where you can see all the articles cited here and even more both in English and in Japanese: https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/ , https://www.osaka-gu.ac.jp/php/nakagawa/TRIZ/eTRIZ/eWTSP/
Hypothesis: Good Catalogs of websites (in place of papers, webpages, etc.) in a (S&T) field are useful to guide many users and encourage/promote the field.
(7) YouTube: "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" (Toru Nakagawa) Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx_pLqJqSvZN3zv48bDhTYQ
In YouTube, I have started a video presentation channel shown above. I already posted some video lectures in Japanese. Videos in English will follow sometime later.
** Note (TN, Feb. 6, 2022): I will not use Facebook nor Twitter.
