Academia.edu is a social networking site for academics. The platform is used to share papers, monitor their impact, and follow research. Not a lot of recruiters try to source there. The reason is simple they do not know how. Well to do this without worry you need go no further than into your bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, called x-raying.
So to source within Academia.edu you simply need to create an x-ray string, like the one below.
site:academia.edu “my doctoral thesis” software development
If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.
If you need more info on X-raying see my blog post http://www.recruitingblogs.com/profiles/blogs/seeing-what-is-really...
