Research Solutions Wants to Be the Next Amazon

Stocks in this article: AMZN GE RSSS BA ABT AAPL NVS


NEW YORK (The Street) -- When Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) was just a start-up in 1994, it was attempting to become the best online seller of books on the nascent worldwide web. Very few people even knew of the potential of the Internet and fewer still recognized AMZN would become one of the Web's greatest purveyors.

Fast forward almost 20 years and you'll find me in Los Angeles interviewing the CEO of micro-cap Research Solutions, which traded on the OTCBB under the symbol RSSS. Peter Derycz is by nature demure, but when he begins to speak about his company, he comes alive with enthusiasm.

The company was formerly known as Derycz Scientific and changed its name to Research Solutions in March 2013. Research Solutions was incorporated in 2006 and is based in Encino, Calif. Derycz says his company is part of the $4.2 billion science, technical and medical information industry (a.k.a. STM Data-Mining). By extension that connects the company to the $1 trillion periodicals industry.

Meeting with me and a few invited others, Derycz obviously loves what he does and is passionate about the company he leads. He explains that RSSS is a leading business-to-business information services and software company that provides scientific, technical and medical information to the global STM industry. "We support both content owners and end-users to help support their marketing, communication and research goals," he explains.

Some of his regular customers are big names, including General Electric (GE), Boeing (BA) and Abbott Labs (ABT). Research Solutions and its wholly owned subsidiary Reprints Desk deliver research information services and software to research-intensive organizations in Life Sciences and a host of other industries. They also have "smaller" customers like universities and law firms, that need specific articles, documents and studies and they need them fast!

That's why Research Solutions created Article Galaxy, its platform to efficiently and legally obtain single copies of full-text papers from scholarly peer-reviewed journals when subscription access does not exist. Article Galaxy also includes capabilities to facilitate literature discovery, management and collaboration.
