Knowledge Base

Getting Started

Get Started on the Pulsar Science Collaboratory!

Create an account

To join the Pulsar Science Collaboratory (PSC), you will need an account. The PSC uses ORCiD, a persistent digital identifier for students, educators, and researchers. follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to https://pulsars.nanograv.org/login
    1. If you have an existing ORCiD, you can sign in with your ORCiD by clicking "Sign in with ORCiD"
    2. If you don't have an ORCiD, you can create one by clicking "Create an ORCiD" and complete the ORCiD form by filling out your name, email, set a password, choose your visibility setting, and agree to the terms of use.  [Tip! If you already have an account on the previous Pulsar site, it would be best to use the same e-mail when creating your ORCiD account.]
  2. After you sign-in with your ORCiD and authorize your ORCiD to be linked to PSC, you will be required to validate your e-mail address on the PSC. Use the same email address you used on your ORCiD. 
  3. You will then see "Account Created!" - Congratulations! You can now access the PSC and start discovering pulsars.
