Time flies when you're having fun, and this very much applies to 2015 at Kudos - along with a lot of hard work!
Much has happened during the last 12 months and it really has been a pivotal year, not only in terms of increasing those now using Kudos, but also the general recognition for Kudos as an innovative and unique tool that really does work, and can continue to help authors increase the impact of their work.
You may have also seen us pop up in a few places....
Whilst the news coverage and awards are great achievements, our main focus still remains on providing an innovative platform that helps authors to get their work noticed. Throughout the year, we conducted various surveys to ensure we were doing just that! We were overwhelmed with responses from both researchers and publishers using Kudos. The feedback gave us a great indication in to what is working well, but also what can be developed further in the new year.
Co-founder and Executive Director Melinda Kenneway commented:
"The past year has seen Kudos go from strength to strength, thanks to the support of our researcher, publisher and institutional customers. We have big plans for 2016 that will see the gradual transition of Kudos from a stand-alone platform into a service that is integrated deep into the research workflow, assisting the community with achieving greater impact for research outputs."
On behalf of the whole Kudos team - we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
