How to maximize the usage and impact of your published articles

Earlier in the year the article, “Kudos where it’s due: An interview with Charlie Rapple,” (Kudos co-founder) went live on Wiley Exchanges. Together with fellow publishing consultants Melinda Kenneway and David Sommer, Rapple designed Kudos to help scholars and their institutions increase the impact of their published research articles. When the interview published Kudos was a new service under development.

After a successful alpha launch, Kudos announced on Thursday a new partnership with Wiley to enable authors to measure, monitor, and maximize the usage and impact of their published articles by providing a new way for them to use social media to engage the digital community with their research.  Now more users will be able to access the tool.

From April 2014, the Kudos platform will be freely available across a representative trial of articles from Wiley’s Global Research portfolio.
