How to use Kudos:

Using Kudos helps you to maximise and measure the impact of your research, allowing you to explain your work to a new audience and track its dissemination across multiple platforms.

KnE Publishing is providing this service to its authors for free. We want to help our authors promote all their research as widely as possible, so you can use this platform for all your articles and books, not just those studies you have published with us!

How it works

Once you have registered with Kudos you can claim articles from other journals and publishers.

You will then be able to track the global interest for each item you publish via these metrics:

knowledge E about kudos

You can also access tools to help you grow your readership and citations.

For each article, we suggest you complete the ‘What is it about’ section. Try to explain your research as simply as possible and remember you are writing for a non-specialist audience.

We also encourage you to write your simple summaries in both English and your native language – to increase the potential audience.

Once you have completed this short, accessible description, you can choose an image from Kudos’ database to illustrate it.

Once this is done, you will be featured on the Knowledge E showcase and the Kudos all publications showcase.

This will increase the visibility and discoverability of your work, and ensure it gets read by a wider audience.
