Kudos, the award-winning service for accelerating research impact through strategic communications management, is delighted to announce a new partnership with AIP Publishing, a leading not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences.
The partnership will provide editorial and marketing staff at AIP Publishing with unique intelligence about how their authors communicate research, from indicators of emerging ‘opinion leaders’, to comparative metrics across a range of both online and offline communication channels. AIP Publishing’s authors will also benefit directly, as the partnership will streamline their efforts to broaden the visibility and impact of their articles, and provide them with a richer understanding of how they can best increase readership.
“AIP Publishing is committed to broadening the reach of its authors and publications, both within and beyond academic audiences,” says Sara Girard, Director of Marketing and Communications for AIP Publishing. “Partnering with Kudos is a natural way to substantiate our strategy in this area.”
“Rapidly evolving societal and funder expectations have intensified the pressure on researchers to ensure that a wider range of audiences are finding, understanding and applying their work,” adds Charlie Rapple, Chief Customer Officer and co-founder of Kudos. “Progressive publishers are expanding their ability to support researchers in meeting these goals, and we’re thrilled that AIP Publishing have chosen our service to help extend and enrich their research communication services.”
Over 300,000 researchers have signed up to use Kudos’ services for accelerating and broadening research impact. The company’s toolkits help to showcase research to broader audiences, and provide guidance and insight around the channels and activities that are most effective for reaching and engaging target audiences. Kudos has over 100 publisher, institutional, society and corporate customers around the world, and has won a range of awards including the 2015 ALPSP Award for Innovation in Publishing.
