VIVO is member-supported, open source software and ontology for the representation of scholarship. VIVO supports research discovery, expert finding, network analysis and assessment of research impact. In this project report, we will describe new initiatives and product development in the VIVO community. We’ll explore the VIVO implementations at Duke and Texas A&M that have led to strong faculty engagement with both systems. Specifically, we will contrast and compare the evolution of our implementations that have addressed distinct needs at the two universities to support interdisciplinary collaboration, research intelligence, and scholarly reputation.
