Say you are an expert in any field – from pediatric medicine to early English literature. You are putting together a conference, or writing a book, or working on a major research project. Where do you look to find collaborators who may have scholarly insights that you need for success?
Frequently, the answer is Pivot.
Savvy researchers are already using Pivot to find funding for their work. But even savvier researchers also use Pivot to help get their work discovered.
Pivot contains the largest available collection of authoritative, searchable profile information about scholars around the world, together with verified affiliation and publication information. Pivot Profiles include key biographical information, research interests, selected publications, and contact information, enabling users to identify and contact relevant scholars based on their research, publishing, and professional credentials.
The database is a unique tool for finding researchers by specific area of study, providing keyword access to the community behind the content.

Data added by the profile owner: Once a person has claimed their profile, they can provide additional information to what is already listed.
Profile owners can update and provide:
