Pivot, the database of funding opportunities, now allows researchers to add their Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) to their profiles, and allow Pivot to receive automated updates in the future. Stronger profiles improve its ability to suggest funding opportunities and potential collaborators.
For more information read the August 2014 release notes.
Many stakeholders from across the research lifecycle have been integrating ORCID into their products—NIH, journal publishers, figshare, PubMed, Scopus, Altmetric, ImpactStory, etc.—ensuring that researchers get credit for their work.
If you are new to ORCID, read our earlier post about using Scopus to create your ORCID and populate it with your publications.
To add your ORCID to your Pivot profile:
1) Go to Your Profile and click Update your profile. (Here is how to claim your profile if you haven’t already.)
2) Edit your profile, Add ORCID, and Get or Associate an ORCID ID. Follow the steps at the ORCID site to authorize Pivot (ProQuest Community of Scholars) to access your ORCID data.
