Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an online tool that helps researchers create a research profile that complies with the new NIH biosketch format.  SciENcv pulls information from available resources (eRA Commons, ORCiD), making it easy to develop a profile that can be readily updated and modified to prepare future biosketches.

To use SciENcv:

  1. Sign in to your NCBI account with your eRA Commons or ORCiD login information. If you are supporting a Faculty member, you will need to create your own NCBI Account and ask to be assigned as a delegate.
  2. Select My NCBI in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of your My NCBI account and select Click here to create a new CV.
  4. Choose from scratch or an external source. Enter your name. Select NIH Biosketch. If you logged in with your ORCiD or eRA Commons accounts, much of the information will be populated.
  5. Complete  your profile by filling in the necessary information.
