Getting More From Your VIVO: Generating Reports and Functional Datasets For Analysis

<p>Research information systems are important tools for individuals, institutions, and consortia and can inform decision making, assessment, and collaborative activities. This workshop will cover the concept of research impact and indicators of impact within the VIVO ontology, business processes, and workflow for generating reports and datasets from your VIVO. Attendees of the workshop will gain a better perspective of strategies to identify and monitor research impact using their systems and a recipe book (including sparql queries) to generate meaningful reports and data sets. Attendees will be able to participate in hands-on work with the VIVO-ISF ontology to identify existing indicators and brainstorm possible ontology extensions for incorporation into the data framework. Finally, an open discussion on consortial approaches for use of this data will conclude the session.</p>
