I know some people think “well, I can share my work in all of these ways anyway, and I can generate my own trackable links – what does Kudos add?” – here’s your answer: by managing your sharing through Kudos and our trackable links, you benefit from us putting together all of the statistics about your work including those relating to your efforts to share as well as those relating to your publications. So this saves you a lot of time and effort in terms of checking how your work is performing, or understanding whether your communications are worth your time.
Here’s an …
And he can see all of that here, in this one dashboard, rather than having to track and check all of this separately in multiple different places.
If we try to categorize the services in the scholarly communication world, there are content producer or providers – publishers, and then there are aggregators to compile large amount of contents into databases, which serves users in different information needs, e.g. citation index, A& I services, And there are various scholarly services build on, or work together with information providers, e.g. Access tools, article summarize tools, reference management software, research outreach related tools e.g. Altmetrics providers, plain language summary platforms, profiling services, id services, etc. And all these services are linking together by DOI. DOI is the foundation of all these linkage, and it makes it possible to enable the access, enable communication, widen the audience, and give credit back to authors and publishers.
Create awareness: This is about to increase the number of followers. Can start from zero to thousands or to expand the follower population on existing FB. Those media are meant for create awareness but the DOI is helping to link back to the more original source, the fulltext. There is another important factor here, it’s all about the originality, novelty and credibility. Without such linkage, it’s very easy to misinform and that’s what we usually called, fake news. Most audience at this level could be public Develop interest: The is about getting closer to the right audience and they are mostly researchers of adjacent disciplines. They would like to know a bit more yet remains at bite-size to comprehend the content of the research. Potentially researchers at this level will keep the linkage for future use or collaboration. Again, DOI plays a role to link back to the original source when there is a need for further study Call-to-action. This is the obvious. This when researchers or audiences start to download and hopefully they will read and cite, or even more actions like collaboration, etc
