Venice Consulting Group and MyNetResearch Lead the Way to Empowering Collaboration for Researchers


Worldwide online network of academic and corporate researchers with over a thousand knowledge specializations now a click away

CULVER CITY, CA. May 28, 2008 — Venice Consulting Group (VCG), a leading software development and consulting firm, today announced the release of a new collaboration tool for researchers with MyNetResearch. The web site provides researchers a destination to collaborate in a social networking environment. Researchers around the world can now locate each other, work on projects together, keep up with the latest news and discussions in their subject specializations and obtain specialist tools to help them in their research. MyNetResearch provides benefits for individual researchers, corporate users, academics and non-profit users alike.

The benefits of using MyNetResearch include:

  • Significantly increasing the number of concurrent collaborations initiated and managed
  • Raising research awareness through blogs, forums, articles, wikis and research-related news feeds
  • Searching for collaborators by discipline, subject, research interests, location, and other criteria using the MyNetResearch search engine
  • Improving the speed and effectiveness of communication and coordination between collaborators using MyNetResearch’s Dashboard, Messaging, and Chat Rooms

“MyNetResearch was created with the overarching goal of maximizing research productivity through global collaboration,” says founder and chief executive officer Dr. Bay Arinze. “Although we are well into the twenty-first century, collaboration between researchers is still stuck in the state of a previous era. Why be constrained by geography to researchers in a local area when users can interact with hundreds or thousands of like-minded individuals around the world? MyNetResearch transforms the research enterprise into ‘partnerships of opportunity’.”

Membership to MyNetResearch is free, with premium members enjoying increased amounts of online storage as well as other features including the ability to generate project statistics, archive projects and author a blog. Premium members also gain access to “My Toolbox” which collects popular and powerful research tools in one easy-to-access location. My Toolbox allows for literature search, citation analyzer, journal selection guide, research methods advice, conference selection guide, grants program locator, an online survey creator and a bibliography creator.

The web site was custom-built with Microsoft Visual Studio using Microsoft ASP.NET, C# and SQL Server 2005. Venice Consulting Group was able to leverage their unique “hybrid nearshore” model to deliver a finished product within the client’s specifications as well as within their budget constraints.

“It was an honor to have been selected to build MyNetResearch and help bring true collaboration to the research community,” says Jack Kurtz, Vice President of Consulting Services for Venice Consulting. “Some of the very brightest minds came together in creating a vision for how best to bring a new paradigm of interaction and convenience to the process, and it was very rewarding to work with the team in the creation of the site.”
