Abstract: Purpose: This paper aims to introduce the OJAX++ virtual research environment (VRE) and illustrate how it can enable researchers to organise and collaborate on their research in one place while using their own choice of popular web‐based applications. Design/methodology/approach: Recent state‐of‐the‐art reports have highlighted trends in best practice VRE design: the move towards lightweight, modular, Web 2.0 VRE frameworks, and the importance of interoperability and integration of third party applications in such frameworks. Findings: OJAX++ is a practical demonstration of these trends. Practical implications: The OJAX++ VRE is freely available under an open source licence. Social implications: The aim of VREs is to facilitate the research process and the OJAX++ VRE illustrates an implementation of this goal. Originality/value: The OJAX++ VRE demonstrates best practice in VRE design, as highlighted in recent state‐of‐the‐art reports.
