The VIVO project is an international community effort to provide linked open data about researchers in the context of their research activities. A key component of this effort is an ontology that serves as a data interchange standard for information about researchers and research across different software platforms, including Harvard Profiles, VIVO, Loki, and SciVal Experts. Through collaboration with ontologists at Oregon Health & Science University, the VIVO ontology has recently been merged with the eagle-i research resources ontology to become VIVO-ISF (Integrated Semantic Framework).

This presentation will include examples of the kinds of applications that can be developed to take advantage of the rich semantic data enabled by VIVO-ISF. It will also include descriptions of how VIVO-ISF reuses elements of popular linked data ontologies while remaining based on a philosophically sound foundational ontology, and how it enables linking to subject terminologies used by particular scientific disciplines. The briefing will provide a report on the community effort to test, develop and extend VIVO-ISF for maximum possible benefit to diverse research communities, and it will include discussion about how the process of extending the initial VIVO ontology to VIVO-ISF can serve as a model for further extensions to assist in the description and discovery of research and scholarship across a wide range of academic disciplines.
