Abstract: VIVO is an open source semantic web application that enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplinary and administrative boundaries through interlinked profiles of people and other research-related information. VIVO, originally developed at Cornell University, is being expanded through a $12.2m stimulus grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the University of Florida and six partner institutions. VIVO uses data ingested from institutional sources of record and external sources, supplemented with manual entry to populate detailed profiles of researchers with information related to publications, grants, educational background, research interests, teaching, awards, professional affiliations, and more. Data in VIVO conform to a public ontology of types and relationships that can be extended for local needs via the ontology editor included with the VIVO application. VIVO's ontology supports faceted searching for quick retrieval of people, organizations, events, and research-related information. Institutional VIVOs and other compatible profiling applications are producing data to form a rich network of information that can be searched to foster collaboration across institutions and enable open sharing of research discovery. VIVO project members will discuss major project efforts and platform features during the presentation.
