Introducing “Kudos”: An easy way for researchers to publicize their research outputs
As an author, you can create an account on Kudos, and follow the 3 steps below to maximize the impact of your works.
- Add in your publications in Kudos
After registering an account, Kudos will guide you through the process of adding in your publications. You may do a search by title and doi, or import your works by connecting Kudos with your ORCID account. The publications in ORCID will then automatically import into Kudos.
- Explain & enrich your work
Now include a summary for your works listed in Kudos. By adding a non-technical summary, a short title and your interpretation of your research, you can better help your readers understand the main findings and the significance of your research. If your work has press coverage or blog mentions, you can also enrich your description by adding related resources like images, videos, press release, blog posts and data set, etc., which would be a great way to point readers to those non-academic sources.
- Share your findings & track the impact
Use multiple channels available on Kudos to promote your research. Share your enriched Kudos article page with your network of Twitter and ResearchGate contacts and the public by using the integrated social media tools. Kudos will help you track your article’s impact and check which channels of communication are generating the most attention. Gain more insights to how your article is used through the summary of views, number of downloads & citations, and altmetrics on your Kudos dashboard.
You may also explore other platforms like ORCID, Academia.edu and ResearchGate to help promote and share your research with a global audience.

Databases Selection for Systematic Review
Sometimes researchers and students are not sure what database to include in searching and how the databases overlap with each other in terms of the coverage. In view of this, the Library has prepared a guide to support the database selection and searching process for systematic review. You may access the guide from here.
Here we summarize a few commonly used databases for a systematic review in nursing and healthcare, and illustrate the title coverage across these databases.
|Database||Coverage||Major subjects covered||Subject Heading|
|Over 5,200 journals
(Largest database for biomedical literature)
|Embase||About 8,300 journals and 7,700 conference proceedings||
|CINAHL Complete||About 4,000 journals and 1,300 magazines||
||CINAHL headings, MeSH|
||MeSH (in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews)|
|PsycINFO||Over 2,500 journals||
||Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms|
