Many federal funding agencies require a Biosketch. Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) allows researchers to bring together the information that comprises the Biosketch. This profile includes expertise, employment, education, and professional accomplishments. Researchers can use SciENcv to maintain Biosketches that accompany grant applications and annual reports. SciENcv is built and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology (NCBI) and the NIH.

An up-to-date ORCID profile is useful in generating and maintaining a Biosketch. When you log in to SciENcv, enter your ORCID profile number under your Name. This will allow the information under Professional Preparation, Appointments, and Products to be populated from your ORCID profile. It is also an option to use NCBI’s My Bibliography for the Products section of SciENcv. Citations cannot be manually entered into SciENcv.
