VIVO is an open source semantic web application for integrating and sharing information about researchers and their activities and outputs at a single institution while supporting discovery of related work and expertise across a distributed network. VIVO is fundamentally interdisciplinary; it enables and promotes the discovery of research and scholarship across traditional boundaries of geography, organization structure and type, academic or clinical or applied domain, technology, language, and culture.
There is a diverse collection of activities associated with the VIVO project, across federal agencies, academic institutions, professional societies, and data providers, as well as a variety of efforts with the Semantic Web and ontology development communities. Significant partners include CASRAI (Consortium Advancing Standards in Research Administration Information), euroCRIS (Current Research Information Systems) and the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) Initiative.
Producers of VIVO-compliant data include: the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture), Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Consortium institutions, the American Psychological Association and the Publish Trust Project, Symplectic Limited, the Australian-based ANDS VIVO project, and a growing number of institutional VIVO implementers around the world.
