SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) is a new tool to help researchers create profiles in the new NIH biographical sketch format. This new format must be used for all NIH grant and cooperative agreement applications submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015.
To use SciENcv, sign on to My NCBI with your eRA Commons account or link your NIH eRA Commons account to your PubMed My NCBI account. This will help integrate the publications listed in My Bibliography and grant information from eRA Commons into your SciENcv profile.
If you have an ORCID ID you can add it to your SciENcv account; in the future this will allow you to import information and references from your ORCID profile.
Once you have created a SciENcv profile, it is easy to generate a properly formatted biosketch to use in an NIH grant application.
Follow these steps to set up your SciENcv profile. You will gather your publications from PubMed and then link your eRA Commons account with your My NCBI account. This will let you use SciENcv to create an NIH biosketch.
There are 3 ways to create a SciENcv profile:
Biosketches created with SciENcv can be downloaded in PDF, Word, and XML formats. The PDF version can be used when filing grant applications through grants.gov.
You can assign a Delegate to help you manage your NCBI Bibliography and/or SciENcv. To assign someone Delegate status, you must send a Delegate request:
It is possible to edit or revoke Delegate status at any time. Additional information is available on the NCBI Insights blog.
ORCiD is a non-profit organization that aims to solve the author/contributor name ambiguity problem in scholarly communication by creating a central registry of unique identifiers.
ORCiD provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
