Kudos

Kudos provides a free platform for researchers to manage communications around their publications – across multiple publishers and tools. They explain work in plain language and generate trackable links for sharing via email, web and social networks; these enable communications to be directly mapped against views, downloads, altmetrics and citations. Kudos thereby provides researchers, and their publishers and institutions, with a rich understanding of which channels and activities are most effective for broadening reach and impact. Publishers and institutions use Kudos to understand how researchers communicate around their work, and what effect this outreach has. The intelligence generated by Kudos helps shape publishers’ and institutions’ own outreach, and the support they are able to provide – from surfacing researchers’ social media activity and signposting high-interest research that may benefit from additional media activity, to highlighting those that need more guidance to help them maximize the visibility of their work.
