I publish with a lot of publishers including RSC, ACS, Wiley, Springer, Elsevier etc. as evidenced by the list on my CV. However, as I conduct more work on Kudos to play with the platform I am happy to say that RSC has a rather unique position in terms of how we are displayed. I know we are not the only ones with the cover art (as I recall)
As an example, for the RSC MedChemComm article here: https://www.growkudos.com/articles/10.1039/c0md00129e you see the cover art displayed which I believe is a nice touch.
Also, and this I REALLY like, I can see the number of full text downloads. For the article below the number 550 is the number of full text downloads.
For completeness the last five columns are:
|Share referrals||Kudos views||Click throughs||Full text downloads||Altmetric score|
I am increasingly using Kudos as a one-stop shop dashboard to review activities around my articles so to be able to compare ACROSS publishers what the full text downloads are is of value. I should think it should be possible to include views from the publisher website also. While our PLoS article here has had 47 Saves it is about to hit 11,000 views. THAT I would like to see in the table also.
In any case …I am glad to see that we at RSC are contributing the data so I can see it in the Kudos dashboard….now, will other publishers be sharing their data soon too?
