Symplectic Limited, a software company specialising in developing, implementing, and integrating research information systems, has become the first DuraSpace Registered Service Provider (RSP) for the VIVO Project.

VIVO is an open-source, open-ontology, open-process platform for hosting information about the interests, activities and accomplishments of scientists and scholars. VIVO aims to support open development and integration of science and scholarship through simple, standard semantic web! technologies. The project was originally funded by Cornell University and the National Institutes of Health and is currently a community-supported incubator project under the DuraSpace umbrella.

'We are especially pleased to have been chosen as the first official Registered Service Provider for VIVO,' commented Jonathan Breeze, CEO of Symplectic. 'Working closely with the DuraSpace and VIVO communities will help us better serve institutions that wish to join the VIVO network, but do not necessarily have the capacity to do so themselves.'

'As our first official Registered Service Provider for VIVO, Symplectic will help ensure that any institution, large or small, can fully participate in making research and institutional resources available for search, discovery, and analysis,' added Jonathan Markow, CSO of DuraSpace.
