Our People

As a technical services company, it is our people and their expertise that make Ringgold a powerful partner

Ringgold maintains technical, support and sales offices in the US and UK. Our Identify Database and CDO researchers are based in 35 countries. Notable for their expertise in more than 40 languages, our researchers ensure the accuracy of our Identify and CDO databases.

ProtoView’s editors and writers are based in Portland, Oregon. We work closely with every publisher as we produce the abstract summaries and bibliographic information to ensure high quality at every step.

As a team we strive to meet and anticipate our client’s needs. Ringgold’s people have built a company which is now considered the gold standard in organizational identification. The same talent is being applied to build services which help publishers adapt to changes in how their titles are discovered and purchased.

We are proud to contribute to better communication and discovery within the scholarly communications sector.
