A guide for the new NIH biosketch

By Cindy Schmidt

Grant deadline after May 25th?  Get your new biosketch ready!

The NIH and AHRQ will require use of a new biosketch format in applications for research grants submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015. Read more about the new format in our “NIH Biosketch” guide.

With the new format, the NIH is introducing SciENcv a tool that can help you produce your new biosketch. SciENcv can be populated with data from your eRA Commons account and from the publication list in the “My bibliography” section of your My NCBI account. We recommend that you

  1. Create a My NCBI account and link the account to your eRA Commons account.
  2. Create a master SciENcv profile.
  3. Assign delegates to help manage your My Bibliography and SciENcv or begin working on the process yourself.

Complete instructions for you and/or your delegates are available in the library’s “Using My Bibliography and SciENcv” tutorial and handouts.
