Emerald one of a select group invited to take part in Kudos/ScholarOne pilot

Emerald to test pilot that could mean - for Emerald and authors alike- wider dissemination of research, better discoverability, broader usage and greater impact

Bingley, United Kingdom, 25 May 2016 - Emerald is one of a select number of publishers to have been invited to take part in the pilot of a new partnership between Kudos and Thomson Reuters' ScholarOne

Kudos is an online service - free for Emerald authors to use - that helps researchers and their institutions and funders maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. 

ScholarOne provides comprehensive workflow management systems for scholarly journals, books, and conferences. ScholarOne’s web-based applications enable publishers and societies to manage the submission, peer review, production, and publication process more efficiently and access intelligent information to help make strategic decisions. 

As part of the pilot, authors of one of Emerald’s leading publications, British Food Journal (BFJ), will be asked at submission stage to provide a plain language explanation of their research via ScholarOne. 

This is automatically delivered to the Kudos database, where the author is able to create a profile for their publication. 

For Emerald and authors alike, this means wider dissemination of research, better discoverability, broader usage and potentially, greater impact – a fantastic addition to Emerald’s author services!

British Food Journal (BFJ) is an ISI-listed journal with 115 years of publication that continues to be highly respected worldwide for its broad and unique interdisciplinary coverage of the latest food-related double blind peer-reviewed research. 

BFJ is key reading for academics, researchers and students in all social science/management/public health disciplines who are interested in food, as well as nutritionists and dietitians, food and agricultural companies who manufacture, market or supply food, food research institutes, and managers and professionals who work in the food industry.
