  1. VIVO: Data, Tools and Community for Research Discovery and Scholarship Mike Conlon, CTSI, University of Florida, and the VIVO Collaboration Linked Open Data Tools for Discovery Growing Community What is VIVO? • Some participants in the growing VIVO community include: • Federal agencies – White House OSTP, NIH, NLM, NSF, USDA, FDP, EPA, FRPS, STAR Metrics, … • Publishers and Aggregators – Elsevier, Thomson Reuters, ORCID, CiteSeer, Arxiv, PlosOne, Dspace, Symplectics, … • Professional Societies – APA, AAAS, AIRI, AAMC, ABRF, … • International collaborators – Ireland, Germany, Australia, China, Netherlands, UK, Costa Rica, Iceland, Brazil, Mexico, India, … • Semantic Web community – DERI, Tim Berners-Lee, Jim Hendler, MyExperiment, ConceptWeb, Open Phacts (EU), Linked Data, … • Ontology – OBO, NBIC, Eagle-I, BRO, eBIRT, RDS, … • Open Source cooperatives – Kuali, Sakai, Duraspace, … • Social Network Analysis Community – Northwestern, Davis, UCF, INSNA, … • Schools and Consortia – CTSAs, Pitt, Stonybrook, Duke, Weill, Indiana, Emory, Iowa, Harvard, Rochester, UCSF, Stanford, MIT, Brown, Michigan, Nebraska, Colorado, Hunter, OHSU, Minnesota, … • Some community stats: • Software downloads (>10,000), contact list (>1,600) • Four annual events – conference, workshop, hackathon, implementation fest VIVO stores data as “triples” of the form subject-predicate-object. For example: “Smith” “authorOf” “Paper”. Each element of a triple can be a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The VIVO ontology describes the predicates and relations of predicates to classes of subjects and predicates. Through URIs, VIVO can link any element in its triple store to any other element on the semantic web. Cross-site searches with full semantic inference can be performed. VIVO is a new tool for research discovery, providing answers to questions such as “who does work in my area?”, “what grants are in place at UF regarding a particular topic?” and “what papers relate to a specific concept?” VIVO provides search capabilities, faculty and department profiles, visualizations of co-author and co-funding networks and additional tools and data for discovery. Concept heat map displays works for selected groups in relationship to concept map of science VIVO search (vivosearch.org) finds people, papers, grants, across VIVO sites VIVO assembles information regarding publications, grants, courses taught and university activities and positions into profiles. VIVO harvests data from university sources as well as from publishers. Collaboration explorer depicts co-authored papers across selected schools The UF CTSI Co-author network diagram in VIVO shows patterns of collaboration. VIVO provides new opportunities for discovery of work at UF and other VIVO sites. Tools provide analytics, expert finding, network, trend, spatial and concept visualization. Searchlight (vivosearchlight.org), finds people whose work is related to the material on any web page Users can edit their profiles by signing on to VIVO with their Gatorlink. DSR data is updated nightly. Data is available in both human and machine formats. VIVO 2012, August 22-24, Hotel Intercontinental, Miami, Florida Some Data Partners Get Involved Get Involved DIRECT (direct2experts.org) finds biomedical research experts across the country Sites that will produce VIVO data include: CTSA Consortium (60 sites), Harvard Profiles (30 sites), SciVal experts (20 sites), HubZero(4 sites), Loki. Sites adopting VIVO include: American Psychological Association (154,000 members) USDA (120,000 staff, 50 land grant universities), eight Australian research universities, National Science Library of China, 50 sites in the US, sites in Puerto Rico, UK, Mexico, Costa Rica, India. Wellspring provides VIVO profiles. Federal Researcher Profile System, Community of Science, Thomson-Reuters, ORCID, Elsevier exchange with VIVO. More than 500 clinical and translational investigators at UF participated with the UF CTSI in 2010, producing more than 900 publications and 265 grant awards totaling $63.8 million. To get involved, please visit our website at www.ctsi.ufl.edu, give us a call at 352-273-8700, or drop us a line at info@ctsi.ufl.edu. We look forward to hearing from you! VIVO provides data via the semantic web using an ontology for information representation and a standard (RDF) for data formatting. VIVO enables a new class of tools and data sharing, benefiting investigators and science. VIVO widgets for Drupal, WordPress and OpenSocial provide easy reuse of VIVO data vivo.ufl.edu vivo.sourceforge.net VIVO 3, Miami, 8.22.2012 vivoweb.org VIVO is supported by NIH award U24 RR029822. The UF CTSI is supported in part by NIH awards UL1 RR029890, KL2 RR029888 and TL1 RR029889
