McMaster Experts is an implementation of VIVO, an open source researcher networking and discovery application originally developed at Cornell University and used globally by major research institutions to gather and publicize their research activity to the broadest possible audience. Publication data display, meanwhile, uses Symplectic’s Elements, a Research Information Management system that pulls information from multiple bibliographical sources.

McMaster Experts resulted from a collaboration between the McMaster’s University LibraryResearch and High Performance Computing Support, in addition to support from Communications and Public Affairs, and University Technology Services.
