Comment: Changed inappropriate "they" to "we"


  • Elsevier contacted Jonathan to discuss the future of VIVO and Elsevier's role in it.  Also spoke directly with Debra.  Their concerns:
    • Their contributions had not been acknowledged
    • They had not been engaged in strategic planning
    • Lack of advancement in the VIVO technical plan
    • Asked them if there was anything they we could do – they said no; they would be making other overtures to other groups. They will continue to sponsor the conference and continue to have interest in the community.
  • Lessons learned:
    • Redouble VIVO efforts on inclusion, openness, transparency
    • Address member concerns in a timely manner
    • Stay the course on pursuit of technical lead, development of open source community
    • Pursue additional corporate sponsorship with others
