Using SciENcv to create compliant biosketches

SciENcv biosketches will be required for NSF proposals with submission deadlines on and after October 5, 2020. With that date coming up quickly, we want to give all of the faculty at Miami a heads-up about creating their biosketches on SciENcv. Please follow the directions below.

  • Click the NSF login button to connect SciENcv with your profile on research.gov.
  • You will be redirected to research.gov’s sign-in page. Enter your login information and click the Sign In button.
  • After you log in, you will be redirected back to the NCBI website, where you will now be logged in. Click the Create New Document link.
  • Once on the “Create a New Document” page you will need to name your bio-sketch. We highly recommend naming it with a date so you know when updates will be needed in the future. In the format section, select NSF Biosketch.
    • Select an option in the “Choose data source” section.

      • If you select National Science Foundation from the “External source” drop-down menu and you have nothing in your NSF profile, you will see a message warning you that some SciENcv fields will be left blank.
      • If you select Start with a blank document and then click Create, you will be taken to a page where you can input your professional preparation, appointments, products, and synergistic activities.
        • Under “C. PRODUCTS,” clicking the Select citations link will allow you either to connect your ORCID account or to visit “My Bibliography,” where you can select citations to add to your ScieENcv.

 

        • If you do not have existing citations uploaded to NSF or ORCID, you will need to add them in SciENcv individually, but you will only need to do this once because the system will save the information and auto-populate it in future bio-sketches. Clicking the add citations link in the “Products” section allows you to access PubMed citations.
  • Once you have completed your bio-sketch, click Download: PDF in the bottom right of the page, below “Synergistic Activities.” Select PDF download your biosketch in the format shown below.

If you need more help creating a biosketch in SciENcv, please contact me (danielct@MiamiOH.edu) or the proposal consultant assigned to your department!
