Profiles allow you to highlight areas of expertise, academic credentials, and to display information about scholarly output such as research papers, teaching responsibilities, grants and potentially much more.
Data is imported into VIVO's database automatically from authoritative sources, reducing the need to repeatedly enter data manually.
Data is then stored and exposed as RDF, allowing the information to be displayed in a human readable format or integrated into other applications. This authoritative data may be reused across an institution.
Search and visualization tools facilitate the recognition of network connections and the identification of potential collaborators. Links with other institutions in the VIVO network will allow for the identification of larger research networks and collaborators further afield.
