RefWorks/COS "Pivot" Funding Opportunities Database

Wilfrid Laurier University, through its membership in the Ontario Council on University Research, has subscribed for many years to the Community of Science (COS) Funding Opportunities Database.

This past year, through a merger between RefWorks and COS, the COS/Pivot website now provides access to both research funding and expertise information.

The search interface is improved, and Pivotintegrates various datasets into one product. It is possible to save searches and set up email alerts, and Pivot will suggest funding opportunities and potential collaborators for you based on your profile.

Online support for Pivotincludes written and video tutorials available on the Support page of the website.

If you experience difficulties gaining access to the database, contactresearch@wlu.cafor assistance.

Note that the funding opportunities database also includes a large selection of scholarship and research funding information for graduate students, so please pass this information on to your students.
