The six most recent clients to join its services span five countries, including the company’s first customer in China, where 5% of registered Kudos researchers are based. New publisher partners include:

"Kudos provides a one-stop service for authors to share their publications and track the performance. There are many high-quality papers published in our journals every year. Kudos can definitely provide an opportunity for getting more authors involved,” says Yan Shuai, Director of Journal Publishing, Tsinghua University Press. "We are interested to see how our authors will participate in the promotion of their work, and to identify high-interest content and active authors. It will be great that a broader readership can be reached through our cooperation with Kudos.”

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:

Over 80,000 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 60 publisher customers around the world, including Wiley, Taylor & Francis, Cambridge University Press, the Royal Society and the American Academy for the Advancement of Science. The company is also working with institutions including the University of Huddersfield, Carnegie Mellon University and ETH Zürich. Early analysis of Kudos data indicates that the existence of plain language explanations can substantially increase the likelihood of users progressing to read the full text of an article. 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.
