In (other) big news today: a research team from Nanyang Technological University analysed the data we built up in Kudos over our first two years, and found that using Kudos correlates to 23% higher publication downloads. This is an important finding not only for Kudos but also for every researcher trying to increase the visibility of their research. Exciting times in this context at least bit.ly/kudos23pc
 
An independent study has found that using Kudos to explain and share publications correlates to a 23% increase in downloads of the full text for those publications on the publisher website.

What do researchers want from publishers? streamlined workflow, recognition, not to feel exploited. My new Scholarly Kitchen post tries to pivot the "what researchers should know about publishers" conversation based on some work I've been doing recently to explore researchers' needs. Feel free to add other things researchers want publishers to understand! http://bit.ly/tskcar0416
We’ve looked recently at things publishers want researchers to understand better. Are there things researchers in turn want publishers to understand better? Charlie Rapple opens a discussion.

Final call for new roles at Kudos - do you know someone methodical and proactive who'd make a great account manager? What about someone dynamic with great connections who could help our publisher services leap off the shelf? Applications open until Monday - please share this link with anyone you think might be interested! http://bit.ly/kjobsj16
Kudos is hiring! If you're an Account Manager, Sales Manager or Full-Stack Developer, come and join our stellar team!

Still in two minds about the Just Not Sorry app's attempts to make women less "apologetic" when writing; sometimes it's appropriate to be a bit less direct. But I'm quite interested in the idea of an app being able to flag up potentially superfluous words, and thereby help us all communicate a bit more concisely. (See below link for my extended thoughts on this).

Blimey, it's all happening. We're only in the Bookseller! [insert own James Bond gags here - From Russia with Impact? You Only Cite Twice? Citations are Forever? Live and Let Cite?]

Sharing this very useful posting from one of our newest institutional partners, Robert Gordon University, on how Kudos differs from ORCID and Google Scholar Citations. (Hint: it's about taking action to improve impact, beyond just listing your works in a profile).
It is great that people have signed up with the RGU Kudos pilot partnership since the last blog post about it. If you have an ORCID account listing works with DOIs you can easily populate your publ...

We seem broadly agreed that #scholcomms needs overhauling. How can we go beyond talking about this? My latest blog: bit.ly/cartskj16
Charlie Rapple celebrates the many conversations underway to re-imagine scholarly communications – and asks how we can better act on the ideas generated

In a couple of weeks I'll be talking as part of a webinar about “Who counts? Metrics in use by authors, institutions, publishers & funders” alongside Simon Kerridge from the University of Kent / ARMA, Ben Johnson from HEFCE and others. You can sign up now: http://bit.ly/stmcounts (24 Feb, 4pm GMT)
This webinar will provide an overview of metrics, how to use them and what their current limitations are. Presentations will cover the views of the author, institution, funder and journal owner and will offer attendees a deep-dive into what metrics to trust, how to successfully use them, and what new developments are on the horizon. …

My latest @scholarlykitchn post is inspired by a recent survey of library-based publishing in Australia - I found myself cogitating on reputation and brand challenges for the new library-based presses http://bit.ly/tsklpb
Library-based publishing is growing. A recent survey in Australia shows that "increasing visibility of the university brand" is a common objective. Charlie Rapple considers some of the challenges r...

More blog musings - overcoming my resistance to grown-ups needing to be told how to behave, and accepting that perhaps "microaggression" is not something just to roll my eyes at.
Conferences in our sector are increasingly articulating Codes of Conduct. Are they just box ticking? Charlie Rapple tackles her own skepticism and finds that articulating acceptable behaviors may s...

BIG day - launching Kudos for Institutions - if you're interested in knowing which of your researchers are using Kudos, what they are doing with it (in terms of how they explain their work, and where they share it) and what effect this is having on metrics .. let me know! I now have all this intelligence at my finger tips!
 
The launch of our institutional service is a major milestone for Kudos. Now universities and research institutes too can benefit from intelligence into the most effective ways to explain and share research. Do get in touch if you'd like to learn more and take advantage of our early sign-up discounts. We're also excited to have FIVE new publishers join in the space of one month! http://bit.ly/1G0eYhY
Annual Reviews, ACM, EDP Sciences, Future Science Group, RCNi and the Robert Gordon University all join Kudos in September.

Great selection of thoughtful gifts and cards. The owner has been through cancer herself so gives really useful explanations and ideas that helped me a choose a much more appropriate / meaningful / practical present. I chose Queasy Drops which were really appreciated by my friend and helped him cope with one of the after effects of chemo. Shipping was really quick, pricing was fair and the whole process was so much more personal than just ordering flowers or whatever. Plus it is good to feel you are helping someone get back on track after their own illness.
