Kudos Pilot Concerns Content Sharing on Scholarly Collaboration Networks

In cooperation with ReadCube, Kudos is starting “a pilot program to help publishers prevent copyright infringement and reclaim lost usage from sharing of research articles on scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs).” So far, participating publishers include the American Thoracic Society, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, and MIT Press.

“Many publishers embrace the idea of authors doing everything they can to maximize the visibility of their work, including maintaining a profile in sites like ResearchGate and,” says Charlie Rapple, Kudos’ co-founder and sales and marketing director. “The challenge is to ensure sharing is copyright compliant, and to measure usage happening in such platforms so that authors, institutions, funders and others can easily gain a comprehensive understanding of the interest in and readership of an author’s work. Our new solution is an exciting step forward in terms of tackling this major industry challenge.”
