VIVO, an RDF CMS

This was sent in Issue #8 of Squirrel Notes on May 11, 2018.

A couple issues back, I discussed RDF as a potential content architecture. I got a response from Shawn who tells me about VIVO, a platform for distributing research publications and attribution using RDF:

Because they all share the base RDF ontology data can be linked together so you can have a canonical source of attribution and such. [...]

The content can be managed in several ways, natively within the VIVO App [...] but there are also APIs that let you use whatever you like really... I’ve seen backends in Drupal, Django, Wordpress, and so on.

So, there’s a way to manage content in a traditional CMS, but publish via RDF, which I find fascinating.
