ready VIVO Integrated Semantic Framework Ontology


General Information
VIVO is an open source platform for research discovery. The VIVO Integrated Semantic Framework ontology represents researchers in the context of their experience, outputs, interests, accomplishments, and associated institutions. VIVO-ISF provides a set of types (classes) and relationships (properties) to represent researchers and the full context in which they work. Content in any local VIVO installation may be maintained manually, brought into 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.
