Scholarly Profile Management and Publications Reporting

The Weill Cornell Library offers services to help you track the impact of and increase the visibility of your scholarly output. Through the use of the VIVO database, members of our team can generate publication and citation reports for grant renewals, annual reports, tenure considerations, recruiting activities, and and any other project requiring detailed publication tracking. If you are interested, please send a request to with the details of your project.


What is VIVO?

At Weill Cornell Medical College, VIVO acts as the researcher profile system. Invented at Cornell University, VIVO is a NIH-funded research networking tool. Weill Cornell was one of the original implementation sites. For more information about the software, see

What can VIVO do for me?

The primary goal is to offer faculty and researchers a polished and accurate web presence. To that end, we bring in data only from authoritative sources. In particular, we have tried to ensure that your list of authored journal articles, including those from previous affiliations, is accurate and complete.

Having accurate metadata about you and your work allows you: to attract funders, collaboration opportunities, and receive proper credit for your activities.

Who is in VIVO?

At present, VIVO includes all faculty with a Weill Cornell appointment as well as postdoctoral associates or fellows with a primary affiliation of Weill Cornell. We also plan to create profiles for graduate students. Note that all users in VIVO must already have Center-Wide Identifiers (CWIDs).

Custom Reports

The Library offer customized reports to the WCM community. Please visit the wiki page or contact for more information.

API Web Service 

This service allows those who need to repurpose publication metadata (e.g., those who maintain a departmental or lab website) to get a feed of data. It’s currently available to all WCM users on the campus network.
