Join us!We invite you to join us at a VIVO event this year to learn more and connect with others who are interested in VIVO, scholarly representation, collaboration and open research discovery. 2012 VIVO Implementation Fest: May 14-16, 2012 University of Colorado Boulder http://vivoweb.org/2012-vivo-implementation-fest Third Annual VIVO Conference: August 22-24, 2012 Hotel InterContinental in Miami, FL http://vivoweb.org/conference Contact usWould you like to learn more about VIVO and how it works? Interested in collaborating? Does your team have specifc questions about supporting VIVO at your institution? Would you like to give us feedback or schedule a demonstration? Drop us a note at http://vivoweb.org/contact.VIVO Open Source CommunityVIVO enjoys a robust open source, open community space on SourceForge. The site oers a wiki, focused listservs, and ways of connecting with other VIVO project members such as event listings and collaborative phone calls. The VIVO software and ontology are publicly available at the SourceForge site, along with content that supports implementation, adoption, and development eorts around the world. Visit http://vivo.sourceforge.net.Social MediaFollow the project and receive updates: http://twitter.com/VIVOcollab http://www.facebook.com/VIVOcollaboration VIVO provides new opportunities for discovery. Data can reused and repurposed in a wide array of tools and settings by web pages, applications, and other consumers both within and outside the institution. Individuals may access the browse and search functionalities of VIVO anytime via the web. Researchers, scholars, students, administrators, funding agencies, donors, and members of the general public may all benet from using VIVO.VIVO provides data via the semantic web using an ontology for information representation and a standard (RDF) for data formatting. VIVO enables a new class of tools and data sharing, beneting scholars and science. http://designcipta.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Green-Globe.png Tools and data for global discovery & collaboration Internal data sources Human Resource Directory Oce of Sponsored Research Institutional Repositories Registrar System Course database Faculty Activity Systems Events and Seminars Institutional partners Core & center membership rostersExternal data sources Publication warehouses: PubMed, PLoS, BioMed Central, Web of Science, Scopus, and more Grant databases: NSF/ NIH National Organizations: AAAS, AMA, AMIA, CTSAs, etc.Manual editingIndividuals and their proxies can supplement the prole with additional information. A Growing CommunitySites that will produce VIVO data include: The CTSA Consortium (60 sites), Harvard Proles (30 sites), SciVal experts (eventually 20 sites), HubZero (4 sites), Loki, and other VIVO adoption sites. Sites adopting VIVO include: American Psychological Association (154,000 members) USDA (120,000 sta, 50 land grant universities), eight Australian research universities, National Science Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 50 sites in the US, and dozens of international sites across Puerto Rico, China, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Mexico, Costa Rica, India, Germany, Netherlands, Chile, and more.

A SPARQL query builder is part of the standard VIVO distribution and allows for end-user data requests from a VIVO implementation, enabling access to data for subsequent analysis, evaluation, and visualization of the research enterprise. What is VIVO? Recommendation: All CTSAs should encourage their institution(s) to implement research networking tool(s) institution-wide that utilize RDF triples and an ontology compatible with the VIVO ontology. Recommendation: Information in people proles at institutions should be publicly available as data as a general principle, specically as Linked Open Data. To ensure quality of information, authoritative electronic data sources versus manual entry should be emphasized. Institutions will vary in the amount of information that they will include and make publicly available but the value is enhanced by the quality and quantity of information. Recommendation: Monitoring of the research networking landscape, technology, and tools should continue to be overseen by experts from the CTSA consortium (e.g., the Research Networking group of the Informatics KFC).  http://www.ctsacentral.org/recommendations-and-best-practices-research-networking VIVO widgets for Drupal, WordPress and OpenSocial provide easy reuse of VIVO data Searchlight (vivosearchlight.org), nds people whose work is related to the material on any web page. Find experts for collaboration, media requests, foundation relations, and more.
