Kudos for Kudos

Kudos, which helps researchers and institutions maximize the impact and visibility of their publications, has been named 'Best New End User Product' at the 2014 Charleston Advisor Readers’ Choice Awards.

Winners of the awards, established in 2000, are selected by the editorial board of The Charleston Advisor, which comprises senior librarians from a range of universities and consortia, alongside representatives from related associations and publications. Previous winners of the Best New End User Product category range from the Figshare research repository to the iPhone.

'Winning an award of this calibre at this relatively early stage of our development is a great endorsement of Kudos’ current capabilities and future potential,' says David Sommer, director and co-founder of Kudos. 'It shows that institutions recognise the need for an independent service to help increase the reach of their research, and that the tools and guidance we provide are of value to researchers.'

In addition to its current service, which is focused on individual researchers, Kudos is developing an institutional service for librarians, research support staff, press & communications teams and others with an interest in increasing the visibility of their institution’s research.
