CDN strives to provide an innovative publishing platform that will serve the needs of authors and readers, and advance the scholarship of nutritional sciences. Below are some tools that are free for authors.
Increase the Impact of Your Research with Kudos
CDN has partnered with Kudos, a web-based service that provides tools for researchers to maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. Kudos provides a platform for assembling and creating information to help search filtering, for sharing information to drive discovery, and for measuring and monitoring the effect of these activities.
If you have recently had an article published in CDN, you can register with Kudos and begin using the service free of charge. Corresponding authors of published articles will receive an email with instructions on how to register with Kudos.
How does Kudos work?
Researchers register to use Kudos and are then led through 3 simple steps:
Explain in plain language what your publication is about and why it is important. Add links to other materials that provide context.
Share it to your social networks, web pages or email contacts.
Measure the effect on clicks, views, downloads, citations and altmetrics to learn which communication channels are most effective.
Discover the attention surrounding your research with Altmetric
CDN has partnered with Altmetric to display a badge on each published article that showcases the online attention that article has received. Altmetric tracks a range of sources to capture and collate activity around your research. This includes metrics and qualitative data that are complementary to traditional, citation-based metrics.
If you would like to further demonstrate the reach of your CDN research on your own personal webpage, individual researchers can embed their article's Altmetric badge for free. Read more here.
