Atypon’s Literatum, an online publishing platform, announced its integration with Kudos, the web-based service that maximizes the discoverability of journal articles and other academic content. The integration includes a special enhancement to Kudos to facilitate data loading from Literatum.
By giving authors tools to easily distribute their articles via social media channels, increase their articles’ visibility, and track the resulting usage, Kudos deepens engagement with a publisher’s content, allows publishers to fine-tune their marketing strategies, and increases site traffic, readership, and journal impact. Kudos also enables publishers to identify high-interest content and benchmark its performance against a wide range of metrics.
Atypon publishers that use the Kudos service can set up an automated Kudos feed to deposit article XML metadata directly from Literatum. The integration will be extended soon to include metadata transfer for ebooks and the provision of usage data from Literatum to Kudos, which will help authors understand how their communications efforts increase their readership.
