What is Kudos?

Kudos launched in April 2014, they provide a service designed to help authors and their institutions and funders maximize and measure the visibility and impact of their published articles.

Kudos is a web-based toolkit that helps authors increase the visibility and impact of the articles they publish with Wichtig and other publishers. Kudos enables you to explain and share your work with wider audiences and measure the impact this sharing has on your articles' downloads, citations, and altmetrics. Kudos is used by researchers worldwide and is supported by more than 40 publishers, including Wichtig.

How Do I Begin?

If you are a Wichtig author and want to begin using Kudos, please register for a Kudos account.

Once your account is established, you will be able to claim your published articles, explaining in plain language and highlighting what makes the research you have conducted important; add links to related resources that put your research in context; and share this content by e-mail and social media with colleagues and specialists in related fields. Kudos also enables you to measure the impact of your efforts against a wide range of metrics and across different publications and platforms. You will be able to determine which activities and channels are most effective for communicating your work, enabling you to use your time efficiently.
