Start the week by considering how you disseminate research

Research dissemination is concerned with making sure your research gets read and applied. The journal publishers recommend working with Kudos, a service free for researchers, that provides a toolkit for explaining your work in plain language and for enriching it with links to related materials.

The toolkit can help with:

  • Explaining in plain language what your publication is about and why it is important. Add links to other materials that provide context.

  • Sharing it to your social networks, web pages or email contacts.

  • Measuring the effect on clicks, views, downloads, citations and altmetrics to learn which communication channels are most effective.

Find out more at the link, and feel free to share your stories of dissemination, and advice, in the comments
