Vaccination Informed Consent Ontology (VICO)
VICO is an application ontology for vaccination/immunization informed consent built upon previously constructed ICO (Informed Consent Ontology) and VO (vaccine ontology). The goal of developing VICO is to organize vaccination informed consent-related entities and their relations to enable vaccination informed consent data standardization and integration. The current focus of VICO delevelopment is to represent different vaccination informed consent forms in such a way that it will support consistent representation of immunization questionnaires.
VICO development files include the VICO OWL file and other import files contains portion of external ontologies. To access VICO development version, please download the the whole project, and find the related files from ../src/ontology/ folder.
VICO release file is a merged file made up of VICO owl file and other improted files described above. VICO is released in both OWL file format and RDF file format.
