VIVO utilizing Scopus custom data

Amsterdam, 24 June 2010 Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today that VIVO has begun a pilot project to evaluate the process by which Scopus Custom Data can be used to populate institutional VIVO instances. The pilot project, carried out by the VIVO development team at the University of Florida, utilizes a Scopus Custom Data dataset and will serve as a proof of concept with respect to integrating Scopus Custom Data into individual VIVO instances for discovery across the VIVO network.

VIVO is a NIH-funded national initiative aimed at connecting scientists and fostering collaboration across academic institutions. The VIVO project enables national networking of scientists through institutional-based installations of its open source semantic web application. VIVO partner institutions currently include Cornell University, where VIVO was first developed; the University of Florida, which is leading the program expansion; Weill Cornell Medical College; Indiana University; Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis; The Scripps Research Institute and Ponce School of Medicine, Puerto Rico.

Leveraging the breadth and depth of the raw publication content provided by Scopus Custom Data, an institution will be able to generate more complete bibliographic researcher profiles for display in VIVO. These profiles are the backbone of the VIVO project as they allow scientists to easily and quickly identify peers at institutions across the country with whom they can collaborate based on similar or complimentary research work. It is planned that institutions that choose to utilize Scopus Custom Data datasets to populate their VIVO installations will have the opportunity to purchase a discrete set of bibliographic elements related to the publications of the institution's authors. The installation at the University of Florida will serve as a proof of concept with respect to integrating Scopus Custom Data into an individual VIVO instance.

"As we know, gathering bibliographic data from faculty can be challenging, so incorporating Scopus Custom Data will cut back the time it takes to search and gather institutional publications for VIVO," said Dr. Michael Conlon, Ph.D., principal investigator of the VIVO project and director of data infrastructure at the University of Florida. "By working with Elsevier in this proof of concept, we can validate the implementation of Scopus Custom Data within our system. We believe using Scopus Custom Data will add great value to VIVO installations as it is one of the premier literature and citation sources in the world today."

"We strongly support VIVO's mission to connect scientists and support collaboration across disciplines," said Niels Weertman, vice-president of product management for Scopus. "The breadth of our Scopus Custom Data will allow VIVO to comprehensively capture faculty research activity from a single source. We are excited to be a part of this significant initiative and to work with the University of Florida and other VIVO institutions as they continue to play a critical role in building and developing the VIVO network."
