ESC Journal Contributors - Our Publishers & Value Added Services

Publisher & 3rd Party Services information

What are the 3rd party services freely available to authors and reviewers adding value to the ESC journal publishing experience? Who are the current ESC publishers? The ESC is committed to improving the publishing experience for contributors to our journals. Together with our publishers, we are happy to champion independent services that add value by helping authors and reviewers.

Listed below is a selection of key services. All services are either free to contributors, (because they are either free for everyone or have any fees covered by the ESC and our publishers), or, are deeply discounted as ESC Professional, Professional Plus and FESC benefits. Inclusion does not imply endorsement and the list is not exhaustive.

Discounted services for ESC Professional, Professional Plus and FESC members

kudos_logo.pngKudos provides a toolkit for increasing usage and impact of published research. You can use Kudos to explain your work in plain language and to manage and measure your efforts to share it (by email, social media, academic networks and more). They are the only service that enables you to manage in one place all your publications (regardless of where they are published), all your communications (regardless of which tools or networks you use) and all your metrics (from “likes” and clicks to downloads and citations). The European Society of Cardiology and our publishers support this service, so it is free for you to use.
