The Product

Maximizing publication impact

Authors are increasingly sharing their work, often within private networks. Publication usage is being fragmented, putting subscriptions at risk, and publishers are being cut out of the picture in terms of understanding and building on new modes of scholarly communication.

Kudos provides tools and intelligence to help you connect with authors after publication, collaborate with them to maximize publication usage and impact, and reclaim lost usage.



Key Features


Increase readership

Authors are well connected to the audiences most likely to read their work. Leveraging their connections increases readership – a peer-reviewed study has shown that articles that have been explained and shared via Kudos have 23% higher growth in full-text downloads

Mobilize authors

Persuading authors to take a more active role in promotion of their work can be hard. Kudos helps by clearly showing the correlation between their efforts and improvements in “meaningful” metrics such as downloads and citations. Case study: Liverpool University Press


Recapture lost usage

Kudos provides a way for authors to share links, rather than full text. This drives copyright-compliant sharing that maximizes usage of the content on your website, recapturing it from sites like ResearchGate or Learn more about "Shareable PDF"
