Summer of success: nine new publishers sign up for Kudos

For immediate release, September 13th, 2016 — Kudos (www.growkudos.com), the award-winning service for maximizing the reach and impact of research publications, has announced the latest publishers to join its service:

Richard O’Grady, Chief Publications Officer at the Endocrine Society, explains their decision to join Kudos: “Communications around research are changing. We want to strengthen the support we provide to authors, in terms of helping them start conversations around their work, and then tracking the effect that has on a range of metrics. Kudos helps us easily add new capabilities to the services we already provide to authors.”

Charlie Rapple, Sales & Marketing Director and co-founder of Kudos, adds, “We’re excited to welcome so many new publishers to the Kudos community, and to be continuing to support the 30 publishers who have renewed with us so far in 2016. We’re also delighted that so many of our publishers are signing up or renewing for multiple years, demonstrating their long-term commitment to providing authors with legitimate ways to share their work and maximize its reach and impact.”

If you’d like to join the growing list of publishers and institutions working with Kudos to better amplify, support and learn from researchers’ communications around their work, please let us know – particularly if you’d like to meet at one of the following forthcoming events:

About Kudos
110,000 researchers have signed up to use Kudos’ free platform for managing 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. Kudos has 70 publisher customers around the world, including Wiley, Taylor & Francis, Cambridge University Press, the Royal Society and the American Academy for the Advancement of Science. Institutional customers include the University of Huddersfield, Carnegie Mellon University and ETH Zürich. Recent analysis of Kudos data indicates that full text downloads on the publisher site are 23% higher when the Kudos toolkit is used. Kudos was named Best New End User Product at the 2014 Charleston Advisor Readers’ Choice Awards and won the 2015 ALPSP Award for Innovation in Publishing. It has been named in Outsell’s “Ten to Watch” for two consecutive years.
