VIVO is an open source, semantic-web tool for research and scholarship discovery. Emerging tools enable participants to visualize research activity, discover linkages between people, programs, funding, scholarly works, events and more.

When VIVO is installed and populated with researcher interests, activities, and accomplishments, it enables the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines at that institution. VIVO supports browsing and a search function which returns faceted results for rapid retrieval of desired information.

Content in any local VIVO installation may be maintained manually, brought in to VIVO in automated ways from local systems of record, such as HR, grants, course, and faculty activity databases, or from database providers such as publication aggregators and funding agencies.

Semantic Web Developers

VIVO is a Java Enterprise application built around the Jena Semantic Web Framework.
Here is some information to help you find your way around the code base.

SPARQL is the query language for semantic data. SPARQL Resources will help you get started and provide you with basic queries.


Scientists, Faculty, Researchers

Librarians, Research Administrators, Communications and Outreach Providers

Are you tasked with introducing VIVO to your community? You might find the resources in the Learning about VIVO section of interest. Here you'll find support information such as VIVO Benefits which discusses how different stakeholders can leverage VIVO and VIVO data, VIVO FAQs that have been raised during local outreach presentations, conferences, and emails to project members, and a Semantic Web resources to help you learn about the semantic web, linked open data, and more.

Join us on the biweekly Adoption and Outreach Call which offers an opportunity to ask questions, share information and connect with the larger VIVO community on issues related to policy, outreach and adoption, material and strategy development and so on.

Notes from VIVO Global Call  at 4 pm EST Wednesday, February 20

This call brought the North American VIVO community together with representatives from the European, Central American, and Asia Pacific community to hear about the Research Profiles Conference 2013 held February 18 in Melbourne. For details and topics discussed please see the agenda and call-in information page

Institutions Implementing or Evaluating VIVO

Institutions Participating in the 2009-2012 VIVO Grant

Public VIVO Implementations

VIVO Implementations In Progress

Map of VIVO projects we know about – tell us about yours!

Many institutions run VIVO behind a campus firewall during an evaluation or initial data population and review phase, so public links to their VIVO instances are not yet available.  In addition, not all implementations mature into production projects. You may reach many of these via the VIVO implementation mailing list.
