Introducing “Kudos” –a service in support of increasing reach & impact of research
The School is working with a new service called Kudos, to help you maximize the reach and impact of your published work. It’s quick to use - you need to invest just a few minutes explaining your work in plain language, enriching it with links to materials that add context, and sharing it via your social, web and email networks. This makes your work more accessible, and helps ensure it is found, read and applied by people all over the world, both within and beyond your field.
Kudos uniquely demonstrates the results of your activities – the effect on downloads, Altmetrics and citations – to help you decide how best to use its tools. In a pilot program, publications that were shared through the Kudos tools received on average 19% more downloads than those in a control group.
This event is organised as part of International Open Access Week. Visit http://bit.do/OAweek for details of other LSHTM events being held.
