  • May I know who is interested in my papers? 

At the article level, you can view how many people view or download your paper and which country or city they are from by clicking on ‘Show Statistical Information’ link.

  • I share my papers in ResearchGate and Academia.edu, why need submit to Institutional Repository?

Some publishers encourage sharing in institutional repositories, non-commercial subject repositories or personal websites, but specifically forbid sharing in for-profit commercial repositories and social networking sites such as ResearchGate and Academia.edu. So where such policies are in place, you may be in danger of violating these terms of service if you post an article on a social networking site.
