Kudos for Researchers: Explain, enrich and share your work easily
Science Communication of the D-CHAB (Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences) is working with Kudos - 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.
An independent study has found that proactively explaining and sharing work via Kudos increases full text downloads by 23%.
Kudos is free and easy to use; to get started please register here:

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.
Why is D-CHAB working with Kudos?
- we are exploring different ways to support our researchers who want to undertake more outreach around their work
