What is SciENcv?
Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an online system that researchers can use to create and maintain biosketches to share with others, and most importantly, that must be when submitting NIH and NSF grant applications and annual reports. SciENcv pulls information from other systems, including MyNCBI, ORCID, and eRA commons in order to ease administrative burden and allow researchers to quickly create and recreate a biosketch for each grant application or annual report.
SciENcv pulls information from other systems, including MyNCBI, ORCID, and eRA Commons in order to ease administrative burden and allow researchers to quickly create and recreate a biosketch and C&POS for each grant application or annual report.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is mandating the use of SciENcv for the preparation of Current and Pending (Other) Support (C&POS) information, effective for new proposals.
To get started, faculty researchers should:
- Login to Research. gov
- Set up My Bibliography
- Create an NSF Biosketch in SciENcv
- Delegate access to research administrators.
- Work with your RA to identify projects (including outside consulting that involves the design, conduct, or reporting of research) and in-kind resources that need to be included in your C&POS.
This can take time. For more information on how to do this, please consult these resources:
