We will also be running a special prize draw for new researchers signing up to try Kudos at the EB conference, so bring a friend along for a chance to win!
Preview new tools to help you strategically manage dissemination and accelerate impact
When? Monday 23rd April at 12pm (at the EB Talks stage)
Kudos helps researchers increase readership and citations of their published research. Kudos provides a platform for you to add a plain language explanation of your work (helping more people find and understand it), and tools for helping you track your efforts to share your work (e.g. by email, in presentations, or via academic networks / social media). Kudos brings together a range of metrics (views, downloads, citations and “Altmetrics”) to help you track the effect of your efforts, learn which communications are most effective, and save time in future by focusing on those efforts that correlate to improved readership and citations. A recent peer-reviewed study showed that articles for which the Kudos tools had been used had, on average, 23% higher growth in readership.
David Sommer, one of the Kudos founders, will lead this session, explaining how to get started with Kudos and previewing new features for research groups, including dissemination planning and measurement across a wide range of research objects and outputs, and showcasing of work for audiences including policy makers, industry, the media and educators. Participants need have no previous experience with Kudos but it might be useful to sign up in advance.
All attendees will receive a $10 lunch voucher and Kudos goodies!
We hope to see you there – if not, we hope to see you at another event later in the year!
