Ontology for Scholarship: Revising the VIVO Ontology

Feedback form is now closed.
The VIVO Project provides an open source approach to collecting, studying, and showcasing the scholarly work of an institution, and sharing data about the work using a common ontology. Over more than a decade, the project and software have matured with use in more than 27 countries. The VIVO Ontology has experienced demands to represent new forms of scholarship while adopting best practices in ontological design and development. Domains of representation have emerged, and much good work can now be incorporated in a revised, and modularized ontology. A first domain has been isolated and a work product is available, the Language Ontology, based on ISO-639-3, which can be used to represent the language capabilities of people and the languages of their works. In this presentation, we will describe the pressures on the ontology to modernize, the domains of representation that can now be separated, new forms of scholarship to be represented, best practices on ontological development being adopted by the project, and the current state of the work to revise the ontology.
