Connecting Pivot & ORCID

The Pivot funding database uses researchers’ profile information in its recommendation engine, matching grants and collaborators to researchers. Now, citations added or updated in a scholar’s ORCID profile will cascade near real-time and seamlessly into their Pivot profile. Integration of this updated publication information helps Pivot learn more about the scholar’s research area, improving recommendations for funding sources and collaborators. This latest enhancement to Pivot eliminates the need for scholars to key citations in their Pivot profile, freeing them to spend more time evaluating opportunities.

Once you have created your ORCID ID, you can link it to your Pivot Profile in these easy steps: 

  1. Access your Pivot Account at 

  2. Click “Your Profile” in the drop-down menu under your name in the top-right corner of the screen

  3. Click the Edit Profile button

  4. Click the + Add button next to the ORCID heading

  5. Follow the directions to either create an ORCID account or sign in to an existing account

  6. Authorize Pivot to read your ORCID profile

If you have questions about connecting your Pivot Profile to ORCID, please email FSU’s ORCID Task Force at
