Altmetric.com provide us with altmetric data which helps us show researchers the effect their efforts to explain and share have had on the attention their work is receiving in social media, traditional media, government policy and a range of other sources.
Crossref is our source for metadata such as title and authors. When users search Kudos they are effectively searching the Crossref dataset (in real time). Crossref also provides the Times Cited count to help us show researchers the effect of their Kudos activities on this key metric. Currently, content must have a Crossref DOI to be visible in Kudos.
We partner with Editage for a range of additional researcher outreach services to enhance their usage of Kudos, including the creation of video abstracts, infographics, editorial services and translations.
We partner with Editorial Manager to allow authors to enter a plain language summary at the point that they submit their papers for publication. The plain language summary then flows through to Kudos to help the author start generating more impact for their work from the day it is published.
EuropePMC links to Kudos plain language summaries from its publication records to help readers more easily understand the content they are looking at.
Jisc Collections have negotiated a standard licence and best pricing to help UK universities sign up to Kudos with minimal effort.
Researchers can connect their Kudos and ORCID accounts in order to automatically import their publications, both as a one-off event, and ongoing (each time they add something to ORCID it will be automatically added to Kudos). This saves time by reducing duplication of effort.
We parter with PaperHive to allow readers to annotate and collaboration through in-document discussions.
We use Ringgold to help us affiliate researchers to institutions. When registering with Kudos, they begin typing their institution name and can then choose from options presented to them, based on Ringgold data. This enables us to roll up their activities for reporting to their institution.
We partner with ScholarOne Manuscripts to allow authors to enter a plain language summary at the point that they submit their papers for publication. The plain language summary then flows through to Kudos to help the author start generating more impact for their work from the day it is published.
