SAGE Publishing one of the world’s leading independent and academic publishers has today announced an extended partnership with Kudos, an online service for authors, to include all content from SAGE’s 900+ journals.
SAGE began a pilot program with Kudos in 2015 and following the success has extended the agreement to two years. By enabling authors to explain their work in plain language, and providing tools to enable them to share their publications, Kudos supports greater research impact. This partnership will enable all SAGE journal authors within the program to benefit from these extended support services for article visibility and engagement.
Speaking of the partnership SAGE Publishing’s UK Marketing Director, Jane Makoff commented:
“SAGE has always put its authors and their content first through supporting both dissemination and visibility of their high quality research. Partnering with Kudos enables us to enhance this, as the platform provides our authors with a valuable new service to help them increase the usage of their work. We are delighted to be working with Kudos across the full portfolio of our journals and we look forward to seeing the added benefits that a full partnership will offer our journal author base.”
Ann Lawson, Head of Business Development at Kudos, added:
“Academics and institutions are increasingly measured by the wider impact of their research, and researchers feel the urgent need to use their networks better to communicate about their work. Kudos makes it easy for researchers to explain and share their research publications, and to measure the impact of their publications and activities against multiple metrics. Through partnering with Kudos, SAGE Publishing is affirming their ongoing commitment to provide added services for their extensive author base. We’re delighted to extend our relationship with SAGE and look forward to developing Kudos further to meet the needs of SAGE’s academic community
