SciENcv: Creating online profiles for federal grants

What is SciENcv?

SciENcv is an application in My NCBI that helps you create online professional profiles that can be made public to share with others. In SciENcv you can document your education, employment, research activities, publications, honors, research grants, and other professional contributions.

My NCBI users can create multiple SciENcv profiles in official biographical sketch formats, for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), which can be used for grant submissions.

When registered with ORCID, SciENcv profiles include your ORCID ID.

Creating a My NCBI account

An NCBI account is required to use SciENcv. Detailed instruction on how to:

  • register for an NCBI account 
  • login to My NCBI using your NCBI credentials
  • login to My NCBI through a partner organization (like Google or ORCID)

...can be found in this My NCBI Help document.

Access SciENcv

Adding delegates

My NCBI users can grant access to other persons (delegates) to view and manage their SciENcv profiles. The delegates will then be able to create, modify or delete the information in the SciENcv account to which they have been granted access.

Refer to the Adding and Removing Delegates section of My NCBI Help for further information.
