Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an online tool in the My NCBI platform which allows researchers to create funder specific biosketches.
SciENcv can be accessed either through the NCBI main page, or directly by navigating to https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sciencv/ and signing in.
Users can access My NCBI using an NIH, NSF, and eRA Commons login.
It is recommended to have a fleshed out and up-to date list of citations in either My Bibliography or in ORCID. Linking will allow information to pre-populate and provided a level of quality insurance that information is constant across multiple platforms.
Users can add citations into their biosketch from the My Bibliography section in the My NCBI platform. The MY Bibliography section also feeds citations to eRA Commons.
Basic and standard biography information.
from scratch, duplicate an existing one, or import information from an external source
Choose to create a Biosektch starting from blank, duplicate an existing one, or import information from an external account such as ORCID or eRA commons.
Note: Any written details are saved automatically
Make public link to all citations
Click on Download PDF in the upper or lower right corners of the biosketch.
First, be sure that you have authorized ORCID as a trusted connection. Click here to see how. If you have already done so, be sure that in ORCID, the visibility settings for the information is set at either "everyone" or "trusted parties", and not at "only me".
Biography Information imported into a Biosketch only happens once. However, it is possible to refresh a list of citations from ORCID if any changes are made there.
They cannot be imported, or linked, directly. However, it is possible to download a BibTeX file from My Bibliography and import it into ORCID.
