Research Square is the parent company of Rubriq, AJE, and JournalGuide. Our combined team of researchers, software developers, publishing industry veterans and other specialists recently moved to a fantastic new office in downtown Durham. You can read more about it here. We’re planning an official ribbon-cutting ceremony before the end of the year. If you’re in the Raleigh/Durham area and would like to join us, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Research Square was recently the recipient of several awards, highlighting both our overall growth as well as the workplace itself. We received multiple distinctions from Inc. Magazine, including membership on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list and the Inc. Hire Power award. The Hire Power designation ranks us in the top 10 of North Carolina companies creating new jobs, as well as the top 10 in our category.
In addition to accolades from Inc. Magazine, we were also listed in the Triangle Business Journal Fast 50, which highlights the fastest growing private companies in the area. But we don’t just get honors for growth. Research Square was also recognized for our family-friendly work culture. Carolina Parenting, which owns Carolina Parent, Charlotte Parent and Piedmont Parent, highlights companies that support and encourage working parents in North Carolina. They selected Research Square for their 2013 N.C. Family-Friendly 50 Companies list.
As part of the Research Square family, our Rubriq team has been spending quite a bit of time helping our fledgling sister brand, JournalGuide. Although the public launch is expected by January, you can see our beta now on www.journalguide.com. In addition to helping to create JournalGuide, the Rubriq team also recently integrated the Rubriq scorecard into the new Scholarly Editing Assistant site offerings. This new site is a collaboration primarily between our sister company AJE and Thomson Reuters. We have also been working on some special projects working directly with journals. Look for updates about our brand new projects as well as more information on our work with Thomson Reuters here on our blog in the weeks to come!Lisa Pautler, Director of Marketing (@RubriqNews)
