Hi All - people are requesting the article on ResearchGate - is best practice to just point them to the link to the article?

I always do that, using the "quick reply" option "already available open access at [link]". For this paper we may want to add "The printed version of the article will be available later in open access at https://eos.org/current-issues".

It's frustrating that there is no place to provide open access links upfront in article pages on ResearchGate. In the past, I have sneaked the OA link at the beginning of the abstract, but I am not sure that has worked: people still asked me for the paper.
