The resources were originally developed by a cross institutional library project team led by University College Dublin with project members from Dublin City University, Dublin Institute of Technology and Maynooth University.

Kudos is a web-based service that helps researchers and their institutions and funders to maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. Kudos provides a platform for assembling and creating information to help search filtering, for sharing information to drive discovery, and for measuring and monitoring the effect of these activities.

You can set up an account with Google Scholar, ad you publications and keep track of citations and your h-index. Please be aware that Google Scholar often shows higher citation counts than databases such as Scopus and Web of Science. This is because more output is being counted, such as non-peer reviewed publications, grey literature and theses.
