The Kudos Mission
To help authors, funders and institutions increase the impact of their published research articles.
Kudos (www.growkudos.com) is a new service that helps researchers and their institutions/funders to measure, monitor and maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. It builds on three core principles: that readers are increasingly struggling to filter the growing quantity of published research; that information which supports filtering – such as lay summaries and impact statements – often exists but is not made public; and that authors are best placed to increase awareness and impact of their work, but don't always know how to do this. Kudos provides a platform for assembling or creating information to help filtering, for sharing information to drive discovery, and for measuring and monitoring the effect of both activities.
Following a successful pilot phase we are now looking to further develop the product for commercial launch in the second quarter of 2014.
Our team is made up of a range of experienced and enthusiastic specialists within the field of academic publishing, with a specific focus on technology, discoverability and marketing.
