Discovery Experts Database Frequently asked questions

Pivot subscription canceled

OVPR ended its contract with PIVOT since its service overlaps with those funding search services offered by SciVal. As with PIVOT, users who register for an account with SciVal can save their searches, set up automatic searches, and track identified funding opportunities. If you have any questions about how to use SciVal, please contact your Research Officer.

WMU faculty and staff may use other search tools including the Discovery Experts system, where you can set up funding alerts based on your publications, and the Foundation Directory Online, where you can search funding opportunities from foundations and other nonprofit entities (FDO can be accessed through the University Libraries website.

For federal funding opportunities, faculty and staff can use the grants.gov search engines.

OVPR Research Officers are available to help faculty and staff with their searches.
