What is Kudos and how does Kudos benefit me?
Kudos is a sharing platform that provides tools for journal authors to explain, add links to, and share their work with a global network of researchers and a wider audience in a remarkably easy way. It is being supported by Hogrefe and is free of charge for researchers.
Using Kudos’ tools to explain and share your work will help drive citations and downloads of the article – as well as drawing attention to it among a wide audience. A recent study has shown that using Kudos’ tools is correlated with 23% higher usage of articles that have been explained und shared. It also allows you as an author to view metrics on your personal dashboard about how the article is being shared on social media.
Four simple steps will let you maximize the usage and impact of your publication. 15 minutes to impact:
- Explain your work and tell readers what it’s about and why it’s important.
- Enrich your publication by adding links to related materials.
- Share a link to your publication by email and social media.
- Measure the impact of your activities on your publication’s performance. Metrics shown on your personal dashboard can include publication views, full text downloads, social media shares and citations.
