VIVO is open-source software used by universities and research organizations around the world as a research portal to their scholarly activities. It provides an integrated view of the scholarly work of an organization to encourage internal and external collaboration among researchers. Clarivate Analytics offers services to help institutions implement VIVO, including setup and configuration, software customization, technical training and project planning. Clarivate Analytics works directly with clients to plan and execute a VIVO implementation.
Using Web of Science data with VIVO: If you are one of the 8,000+ institutions who use the Web of Science™ database, you can automatically populate VIVO profiles with metadata for research outputs using our APIs. The Web of Science Core Collection™ is a trusted source of records from over 20,000 peer-reviewed journals from around the world and across 250 disciplines in science, social sciences, and arts and humanities. It also contains records for thousands of conferences and books to showcase a range of research outputs in VIVO profiles. Our APIs also enable you to include a times-cited count in VIVO as a measure of research impact for your publications. The Data Citation Index™ provides records of millions of datasets from trusted data repositories. Our API can also be used to integrate these datasets into researcher profiles in VIVO. Check out our demo site to see the data in action.
InCites Benchmarking and Analytics: Subscribers to our InCites™ Benchmarking and Analytics product have access to APIs that enable further integration of rich Web of Science Core Collection metadata into VIVO profiles, as well as citation indicators like “highly cited paper” or “industry collaboration”. Check out our demo site to see these indicators.
