John Wiley & Sons, Inc., announced a new partnership with Kudos, a start-up service designed to help academics and learned societies measure, monitor, and maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. From April 2014, the Kudos platform will be freely available across a representative trial of articles from the Global Research portfolio.
Launched in September 2013, Kudos is a platform designed to provide a new way for authors to use social media to engage the digital community with their research. The platform enables users to create profiles for their published articles. It employs short titles, lay summaries, and impact statements, to make their more engaging for a digital readership. Users can add related multimedia content, such as videos or links to related research, before being provided with guidance, templates, and trackable links to help share their article profiles via social media and email.
