One of the benefits of Pivot is that we have over 3.6 million faculty profiles created and maintained by our Editorial Team. We review profiles on average every 12 to 18 months, however, if you have pertinent information you need added or changed in your profile, you can make certain updates or additions on your own. These updates and additions will be immediately visible in Pivot. You can even attach certain types of files that Pivot will index and make searchable until the information is confirmed and added to your profile.
Claiming an existing Pivot profile is not required in order to use Pivot, however, there are certain benefits you receive by doing so:
Pivot Advisor: The Advisor makes funding opp recommendations for you based on your profile. These recommendations are automatically available on your Pivot Homepage when you have claimed your profile. If you do not claim or create a profile, you will not see the Advisor recommendations on your homepage.
Updating your profile: If you do not Claim your profile, you cannot update it. Why make sure your profile is updated? Your profile is viewed by thousands of Pivot users who may be looking for potential collaborators for a research project. You may be overlooked because your profile is missing critical information.
