    • 12. What is VIVO?• A semantic-web-based researcher and research discovery tool – People plus much more• Institution-wide, publicly-visible information – For external as well as internal audiences• An open, shared platform for connecting scholars, communities, and campuses using Linked Open Data
    • 13. What does VIVO do?• Integrates multiple sources of data – Systems of record – Faculty activity reporting – External sources (e.g., Scopus, PubMed, NIH RePORTER)• Provides a review and editing interface – Single sign-on for self-editing or by proxy• Provides integrated, filterable feeds to other websites
    • 14. A brief VIVO history2003-2005 First development for the life sciences at Cornell, as a relational database2006-2008 Expansion to all disciplines at Cornell, and conversion to Semantic Web2009-2012 National Institutes of Health-sponsored VIVO: Enabling the National Networking of Scientists project transforms VIVO to a multi-institutional open source platform2012+ Transitioning VIVO to DuraSpace for open community development
    • 15. What does VIVO model?• People, but also organizations, grants, programs, projects, publications, events, facilities, and research resources• Relationships among the above – Meaningful connections among people and activities – Bidirectional – Context and navigation from one point of interest to another• Links to URIs outside VIVO – Concepts – People, places, organizations, events
    • 16. Typical data sources• HR and/or directory – people, appointments• Research administration – grants & contracts• Registrar – courses• Graduate-level programs/advising affiliations• Faculty reporting system(s) and/or self or proxy editing – narratives, service, research areas, awards• Events calendar• News releases and/or press clippings• PubMed, Scopus, repositories – publications
    • 17. What is a Semantic Web application?• Provides data readable by machines, not just text for humans• Provides self-describing data via shared ontologies – Defined types – Defined relationships• Provides search & query augmented by relationships• Does simple reasoning to categorize and find associations – Teaching faculty = any faculty member teaching a course – All researchers involved with any gene associated with breast cancer (through research project, publication, etc.)
    • 18. The VIVO ontology• Defines types – Having individual instances (e.g., persons)• Defines relationships – Expressed as statements about individuals• Statements (“triples”) can describe or connect – Data property statements describe individuals – Object property statements connect individuals
    • 19. Example relationships for a researcher Mining the record: Historical evidence for… has author academic staff research area for author of taught by in research area research area academic staff crop management author of Susan Riha teaches research area for Andrew McDonald has author headed by CSS 4830 NYS WRI head of faculty appointment in features faculty members person Earth and Atmosphericfeatured in Sciences Cornell’s supercomputers crunch weather data to help farmers manage chemicals
    • 20. Structured data for visualizations
    • 21. What is Linked Open Data (LOD)?• Data – Structured information, not just documents with text – A common, simple format• Open – Available, visible, mine-able – Anyone can post, consume, and reuse• Linked – Directly by reference – Indirectly through common references and inference
    • 22. An HTTP request can return HTML or data
    • 23. Linked data indexing for search Scripps Scripps UF WashU WashU VIVO VIVO VIVO eagle-I IU Research VIVO resources Harvard Ponce Profiles VIVO RDFCornell OtherIthaca VIVOsVIVO Weill Weill Solr Cornell Cornell search Iowa VIVO Loki index Alter- RDF vivo nate search Solr .org index Digital Vita RDF Linked Open Data
    • 24. Value for institutions• Common data substrate – Public, granular and direct – Discovery via external and internal search engines – Available for reuse at many levels• Distributed curation – E.g., affiliations beyond what HR system tracks – Data coordination across functional silos – Feeding changes back to systems of record – Direct linking across campuses• Data that is visible gets fixed
    • 25. Enter once, use many times• Provides normalized public data to a range of campus applications – Parameterized, filtered queries • By affiliation, org or person id, research area, geography – Search results• Easily consumable data – XML, HTML, JSON – Import module for Drupal – Widgets (Duke, UCSF)
    • 26. Partnerships – research resources• CTSAconnect – OHSU, Harvard, Cornell, Florida, Buffalo & Stony Brook – eagle-i sister NIH project – Harvard, OHSU, 7 others• Facilities, services, techniques, protocols, skills, and research outputs beyond publications – Extended ways to represent expertise – Improve attribution for data and other contributions to science
    • 27. Partnerships – ORCID• ORCID – Open Researcher and Contributor ID – Create an identifier for all authors. Attribute works to authors through ORCID identifier• ORCID and VIVO – VIVO provides assertion of ORCIDs for people through institutional identity management. ORCID is an attribute in a VIVO profile. – Anticipating batch submission of basic researcher registrations by universities
    • 28. Partnerships – research data• VIVO/ANDS consortium in Australia – Link research data with researcher profiles and publications – Harvest to national registry• DataStaR local data registry tool – Add-on to VIVO – Complement to other library data-related services – Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant
    • 29. Partnerships – information standards• euroCRIS and the CERIF research data standard – Linked Open Data task force slated to map VIVO and CERIF ontologies during 2012• CASRAI ( – University, corporate, and government partnership – Building a common data dictionary for research information – Coordinating with euroCRIS
    • 30. Partnerships - APA• The American Psychological Association is using VIVO as one component of a trusted identity framework for online submission and review of scholarly publications• VIVO’s integration with institutional identity systems through the InCommon Federation provides a platform for representing and exchanging information about authors and their works•,
    • 31. Partnerships - Sakai• Cambridge University is testing VIVO as a profiling component of the new Sakai Open Academic Environment product• VIVO’s design permits integration into the Sakai interface without major modification to either platform• NYU and other sites may expand the testing pending grant approval
