Why partner with Kudos

There is a growing demand for transparency in drug development. Although much content is openly available, it is distributed across websites, not linked together. It’s available, but not discoverable. Meanwhile, much of this content is couched in scientific language – meaning it is available, but not accessible.

Kudos is breaking this impasse by bringing storytelling to science. We are the research communication sector’s leading platform for bringing together scientific publications, plain language summaries, and related research outputs and communication assets.

We help scientists explain and share their own publications to maximize readership, citations and impact. We have a ready-made global audience of academics, healthcare practitioners, policy makers and patients. We also optimize visibility and exposure through search engine optimization, content tagging, metadata optimization, and syndication.

Kudos is the only platform dedicated to bridging the critical gap between research producers and users. In doing so, we help more people find, understand and benefit from research.
