ProQuest Enhances Discovery of Global ‘Calls for Papers’ with Pivot® Service
Researchers can easily identify publishing opportunities at conferences and within special journal issues
Through a new addition to its Pivot® service, ProQuest is further simplifying the workflow of researchers by integrating funding and publishing opportunities into one easy-to-use environment. The Papers Invited® database, a comprehensive collection of calls for papers issued by professional bodies, journal editors and other conference organizers in all academic disciplines, is now available via Pivot.
Subscribers using the ‘Calls for Papers’ feature can search papers by keywords, event dates, time periods, country, type, conference or periodical. Researchers benefit from seeing what other researchers are doing, in addition to discovering funding opportunities available to them in Pivot. Pivot enables researchers, faculty and administrators to easily explore new avenues for funding, view funding opportunities uniquely matched to their scholar profile, collaborate with colleagues and manage the results of the process to build a funding strategy that supports immediate and long-term funding needs.
“The researcher’s primary goal is to pursue advancements in his or her field,” said Baker Evans, Vice President, Product Management, ProQuest Researcher Solutions. “Our goal with Pivot is to simplify auxiliary but essential processes – like securing funding, and finding opportunities for publication – so that researchers can devote more of their attention to scholarly achievements.”
