move ideas forward
We're passionate about communicating and collaborating on science.
what we're about
Our mission is to modernize how researchers collaborate and share their work — to accelerate discovery by enabling connections.
Free science from static documents.
iooxa sits at the intersection of scientific collaboration, academic publishing, and technology. Our scientific knowledge and how we describe the world, should evolve past the status quo of print-based publishing and all the limitations of paper.
iooxa breathes life into today’s process by helping the scientific community work in new ways. Our collaborative online tools empower people throughout the scientific journey – unlocking ideas, information, and creativity to enable better communication.

What's behind the name?
iooxa has two meanings: “Io”, is a moon of Jupiter, discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei, an early astronomer and one of the founders of physics and the scientific method; and “oxa”, which references the process of injecting oxygen, O2.
iooxa together is a reminder to recognize how science has progressed, to give credit for past work, as well as provide breathing room to the scientific process as we move forward.
