Pivot - Funding Sources


ORCID ( is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. 
Provides a persistent digital identifier (ORCID IDs) for researchers, which they can connect to their contributions and affiliations during their regular activities, including submission of manuscripts, dissertations, or datasets; grant application; and in student or employee directory and profile records. 

Pivot - ORCID Integration

With an ORCID Integration, researchers’ publications are synchronized to ensure the most accurate automation matching with the Pivot Funding Opportunities. As a member of the ORCID community, ProQuest is committed to ORCID integration in key research workflows as it supports linkages between a researcher and their professional activities ensuring that their work is recognized and useful. 
Researchers can manage their profiles on ORCID and simply connect their ORCID ID to PIVOT.  Then Pivot update new publications on a daily basis. The deeper integration of ORCID enables Pivot to receive future automated profile data updates.
