General information about the VIVO project.
VIVOweb.org is the URL for the VIVO project. The VIVO web enables the discovey of research and scholarship across institutions by creating a semantic cloud of information that can be searched and browsed. Participants will include institutions with local installations of VIVO or those with research discovery and profiling applications that can provide semantic web!-compliant data. The information accessible through the national network's search and browse capability will therefore reside and be controlled locally within institutional VIVOs or other semantic web applications.
The application that supports VIVO was developed at Cornell University in 2003 and implemented locally in 2004. VIVO is being expanded through a $12.2m stimulus grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The seven partner institutions include the University of Florida, Cornell University, Indiana University, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, The Scripps Research Institute, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Ponce Medical College.
Your institution is free to participate in the national network by installing and using the application. The application provides linked data via RDF data making you part of the semantic web! or you can use any other application that provides linked data. You can also get involved with developing applications that provide enhanced search, new collaboration capabilities, grouping, finding and mapping scientists and their work. For more information, see the participation page.
