Academic publisher Cambridge University Press has announced the adoption of three new initiatives, each designed to improve the visibility and accessibility of digital content.
Kudos is designed to boost the impact of content published online. Articles are enhanced with additional information by authors (such as lay summaries or related multimedia) that helps readers filter the growing quantity of published research. This information is then shared via social media to increase discoverability, with the impact of this social reach measured and monitored using altmetrics.
Cambridge University Press is one of the first 15 publishers to participate in Kudos' beta phase. Launching in April, Cambridge will soon be able to offer selected authors publishing articles on Cambridge Journals Online (CJO) the opportunity to benefit from the Kudos service.
The Dryad Digital Repository is a curated online repository, committed to making valuable scientific data freely available and fully discoverable online. As a member of the Dryad scheme, Cambridge can offer its authors the option to store their data in this reliable repository, making it visible to the entire academic community.
Cambridge Books Online is now also accessible via Paratext's Reference Universe, with thousands of links to nearly 400 of Cambridge's major reference works now integrated into this online service.
Reference Universe is a discovery platform for major reference works that brings the finest introductory content into the hands of researchers at all levels of enquiry. Integrating over 400 Cambridge titles will ensure optimum visibility for these valuable titles.
