VIVO: Research and Scholarship Discovery System
VIVO is an open-source, semantic web application that enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines at an institution. VIVO is populated with detailed profiles of faculty and researchers, displaying items such as publications, teaching, service, and professional affiliations. VIVO brings together publicly available information on the people, departments, graduate fields, facilities, and other resources that collectively make up the research and schol- arship environment at an institution. The data can then be disseminated to applications and external websites which utilize semantic web-compliant data.
Two institutions in Puerto Rico are implementing the VIVO system. Both are members of the PRCTRC.
