ASPET is working with Kudos to ensure that the high quality work of our authors achieves the widest reach and impact. Kudos is free to use.
Kudos enables authors to explain their work in plain language, add links to related resources, and generate trackable links for sharing via email, web, and social networks. This links enable the author’s communications to be directly mapped against views, downloads, altmetrics, and citations.
This brief video provides an introduction to Kudos.
