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 traceable 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.


An independent study has found that proactively explaining and sharing work via Kudos correlates to a 23% increase in full-text downloads
