Your research could inspire a global community
What happens after you submit and publish your research in one of our world-renowned journals? During the next stages, we will help you promote your work to a global audience so you can gain the recognition you deserve. We have partnered with Kudos so you can achieve this level of visibility with one powerful platform. By harnessing your potential, Kudos gives you back the time and energy it takes to self-promote your publications. You can easily showcase your articles and demonstrate your impact to other researchers, institutions or funders around the world. Ready to get started?
What is Kudos?
Kudos is a web-based service that helps increase the visibility and impact of your published articles, books and book chapters, making sure your knowledge is found, read and applied by a broad audience.
So far, Kudos has helped over 375,000 researchers accelerate their readership – this includes 10,000 universities and research institutions in over 190 countries. Will you join this community as it gains even more momentum?
How does it work?
When you register for your free researcher account, you can start claiming your publications using easy search terms such as your name, article DOIs or keywords. Kudos will then automatically collate and present information about your publications on a personalised profile page.
Describe your work in four to five sentences, keeping your language concise and simple. What is your research about and why is it important? This allows more people to find and understand your work, attracting readers from outside your specialist community – like researchers in allied fields, members of the media and even policymakers. You can enrich your description and provide context by adding resources like blog posts, videos, data sets and press releases. Our article promotion services can offer you help, too, including how to prepare conference posters, infographics and plain-language summaries.
Kudos generates a trackable link so you can easily share your research with your existing network - via email, on social media and academic websites. A great deal of people in your field are interested in what you have to say – they just need a reminder it’s out there. Plus, an easy way to navigate directly to it is always appreciated.
To track how well your articles are performing (and see which channels are generating the most attention), check the in-depth but easy-to-read summary of views, downloads, citations and altmetrics on the Kudos dashboard. This means you can adjust and finesse your sharing strategy. And because Kudos is a cross-publisher platform, you can analyse the impact of all your articles in one place.
