For immediate release, March 14th, 2017 –– 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:
- Springer Publishing Company has been known as an innovative nursing, social sciences, and medical publisher for over 65 years. SPC publishes over one hundred top quality titles annually, and twenty-one peer reviewed journals. Kudos will give Springer Publishing authors a new tool to easily share their work more broadly and maximize the impact of their research.
- The Acoustical Society of America works to increase knowledge of acoustics and to promote its practical applications, and will use Kudos to increase visibility of its 3 journals.
- The Asian Development Bank fosters economic growth across the Asia Pacific region, in part through its publication of journals, books, proceedings, and other content.
- The International Association for Food Protection helps food safety professionals exchange information on protecting the food supply, and will use Kudos to strengthen author services for its flagship journal, Journal of Food Protection.
“We’re a small team responsible for the widespread dissemination of a range of interdisciplinary content,” says Didi Loynachan, JFP Administrative Editor at the International Association for Food Protection. “The plain language summaries in Kudos will help our readers to better understand, support and promote the work we publish, while the broader Kudos tools and metrics help ensure our journal continues to provide state-of-the-art services to authors.”
Adam Etkin, Executive Editor of Journals at Springer Publishing stated “We are committed to providing our community with the tools necessary to share, promote and discover content important to their field. Kudos will allow us to connect with our authors and readers on a level that’s more focused on their individual needs.”

Over 125,000 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 over 75 publisher customers around the world, including Wiley, Taylor & Francis, SAGE, the American Society for Microbiology and the Association for Computing Machinery. Institutional customers include the London School of Economics and Political Science, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Helsinki, and ETH Zürich.
