VIVO is more than profiles  We often talk of VIVO as a profile system – a system for showcasing the work of scholars.  But it is much more than that.  VIVO create a connected graph of scholarship – one that can be used to discovery connections between all the elements of scholarship – people, grants, works, datasets, resources, and much more.  This month's column explores the idea of VIVO as a connected graph of scholarship, and the opportunities that affords us.

Research Graph and VIVO  Speaking of connected graphs of scholarship, there is Research Graph, an effort of the Australian National Data Service in partnership with the Research Data Alliance.  Research Graph has been mapped to VIVO and Research Graph data hosted in a VIVO.  You can read more here.  Duraspace and Research Graph are exploring possible services related to the mapping of Research Graph and VIVO.  You can express interest in this work here.
