Slides from Kudos' rapid-fire presentation at the New England Publishing Collaboration Awards; Kudos was the winner of the Audience Choice award!
Our submission explores how, in an era of information overload, new communications media and rigorous measurement of research impact, researchers are evaluating their publishing choices to consider which publishers will most assist them in ensuring their work is found, read and applied. This both heightens the competition for the best authors, but also creates opportunities for collaboration; the shared Kudos service helps individual publishers increase support for authors, while compiling an aggregated data set from which wider intelligence can be derived about which marketing messages and channels are most effective for increasing readership. By acting as a nexus for collaboration between publishers, Kudos helps align their efforts in pursuit of shared goals around increasing readership and broadening impact.
