PAV is a vocabulary that is used by nanopublications and all my previous
Probably will be used in Research Objects as well (Stian can confirm or

With Stian in particular, we created a new version that is build on top of
In fact, PAV is one of the three-four ontologies that has been considered

However, that said, there is no official connection with Open Annotation.

I am personally using it for everything I do related to annotation as I
need to distinguish creators of the digital resource, and creator of the ip

And I also need to distinguish a bunch of other things that are essential

Just to be clear, I obviously also comply with the Open Annotation
provenance model (I use both ways at the same time).
