colwiz (free reference management, research collaboration and productivity software)

  • colwiz – collective wisdom – was first created by Tahir Mansoori in his dorm at the University of Oxford and through collaboration with leading scientists at the University. In 2011, colwiz won Oxford University Challenge Seed Fund and entered the Oxford University’s Isis Software Incubator. colwiz was subsequently launched in Private Beta to universities in the UK and the USA; to get feedback from researchers and formulate improvements. Researchers are frustrated by the huge number of different applications used to manage research. Many find it difficult to collaborate and share resources with their colleagues due to different people using different programs. There was a glaring need for a single place where researchers can do all of their management activities, ideally incorporated with a social network, to make collaboration with others easier. colwiz’ goal is to provide a research management environment which enables simple and effective collaboration between colleagues – thus making the life of a researcher easier.
