OpenVIVO at OR2016

Austin, TX  Join Michael Conlon, VIVO project director and Graham Triggs, VIVO technical lead from Duraspace for an OpenVIVO poster presentation at Open Repositories 2016 next month in Dublin. OpenVIVO is a hosted VIVO for representing scholarly work that anyone with an ORCiD can use.

Using ORCiD for sign-on and contributor identification, OpenVIVO can gather works from Figshare, ORCiD and CrossRef from DOI supplied by users. A signed on user can add a paper, or other DOI-identified work, to their profile by providing the DOI, along with the contribution they made to the work. OpenVIVO loads the metadata for the publication from CrossRef in real-time. GRID data is used to identify organizations. An extensive list of journals is included. Data is published to GitHub on a daily basis for anyone to use. Features developed for OpenVIVO will become part of VIVO in future releases. OpenVIVO is a demonstration system showing the value of augmentation of the scholarly record with identifiers, the addition and tracking of contribution types, the value of open, immediate reuse of the data through daily export under FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles. The poster will describe OpenVIVO and its value to scholars and those who study scholarship.
