Kudos’ new Premium personal Showcases provide researchers with a quick, easy, flexible and attractive way to present their publication record, with colourful templates and options to include featured images, alongside standard features such as institutional details and contact information. Premium membership also offers researchers additional features on their publication Story pages, such as the ability to upload their own images and infographics, and the opportunity to link to other assets such as video, data, code, press coverage and more. Premium members benefit from additional metrics including Altmetric data embedded into their Kudos reports, and the ability to track and compare sharing via different communications channels.
Premium members can upgrade to create Story pages for projects as well as publications – providing a quick and easy way to create a project web page that is simple to update as research progresses. Membership can be expanded to cover a research group and allow Showcasing across a range of projects, and collaborative management of research communications. Departments, faculties, schools and institutions can also upgrade to Premium packages that help maximize reach, readership and impact of research.
“The gap between those producing research and those that might use it remains huge – despite funders urging the research community to do more to increase the real-world impact of research,” said Melinda Kenneway, CEO and co-founder of Kudos. “We’re working to close that gap at Kudos – bringing Storytelling and Showcase services to the forefront of research communication, and transforming how quickly and effectively research is found, understood and used.”
