What’S The Benefit Of The Shareable Pdf ?

  • Share with confidence – without having to worry about potential copyright violation.
  • Track and compare interest in publications across the different ways you disseminate your work.
  • Make the best possible decisions as to where to invest the little time available for dissemination.

How Does It Work ?

  • Generate your PDF: The ‘Author view’ of your publication in Kudos now includes a ‘Share as PDF’ option. This will generate a PDF version of the article summary you have created in Kudos.

  • Track it: The summary PDF contains a trackable link to the full text of your article on the publisher’s website. This means that you will now see statistics in your Kudos dashboard about views of your work that have resulted from sharing via ResearchGate, Academia.edu and Mendeley, enabling you to compare the effect of sharing on these websites with other efforts to share.
