Resource for Researchers

Kudos is a free platform for managing communications around scientific publications. This month, a pilot program was launched to help publishers prevent copyright infringement and reclaim lost usage from the sharing of research articles on scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs). The ATS is one of the first publishers to participate in this pioneering approach to managing and understanding usage via SCNs.

Authors can register to use the dissemination tool at the Kudos website. You can connect your publications; add explanations, context, and article highlights; easily share research from one convenient location; and track all of your outreach efforts, including downloads and citations. Sign up for a free Kudos account and help your work get discovered!
