Kudos “Author’s Perspective” for APA PsycArticles® on APA PsycNet®

You may have noticed a section labeled “Author’s Perspective” appearing in an APA PsycArticles record on APA PsycNet. Authors of APA journal articles are encouraged to join Kudos to contribute their own plain-language explanation of the purpose and impact of their study. This first-hand summary appears on APA PsycNet along with the abstract and other publication details, allowing you to further evaluate the article’s relevance in the context of your own research.

What is Kudos?

The Kudos research communication platform allows an author to gather their publications in a single place, regardless of publisher. It’s designed to help researchers maximize the readership, citation, and application of their published work, and quantify its impact.

When an author of an APA journal article shares their own description of their paper’s significance in their Kudos profile, you’ll see an abbreviated version in the database record on APA PsycNet (view a sample APA PsycArticles record with Author’s Perspective summary). You’ll also see an external link to the author’s full statement on the Kudos site.
