Karger Publishers has partnered with Kudos, to help its journal authors maximize the impact of their publications.
What is Kudos?
Kudos is a free platform for increasing the reach and impact of your publications. You can explain your work in plain language, add links to related resources, and generate trackable links for sharing via email, web and social networks; these enable your communications to be directly mapped against views, downloads, altmetrics and citations.
How does Kudos benefit me?
Kudos helps you increase the discoverability of your research, and by connecting the dots between your communications and your metrics, provides you with a rich understanding of how best you can increase your readership. In a pilot study, publications for which the Kudos toolkit was used had 19% higher downloads than publications for which the toolkit was not used.
