SciENcv is Here!

Are you prepared?

What is SciENcv?

Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an electronic system that helps researchers assemble the professional profile needed for application of federal funds. Your researchers can use SciENcv to create and maintain their biosketches. 

UC Boulder has a great step-by-step guide to create and upload information for SciENcv. CLICK HERE to access their guide.

ORCID iD Updates

What is ORCID?

Open Researcher and Contributor IDentifier (ORCID) provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that distinguishes someone from other researchers and a record that supports automatic links among all their professional activities. ORCID iD is designed to be a career-long identifier. Registration is free. Researchers can link their ORCID iD with eRA Commons and SciENcv, along with other systems.Encourage all of your researchers, from Graduate Students to Senior Scientists, to register if they haven't already. 


NIH F and K Awards 

ORCID iDs are required for PD/PIs on individual fellowship and career development applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2020.  If there isn’t a linked ORCID iD, an error will be generated preventing the application from moving forward to NIH for consideration.

Kristi Winseck with University of Colorado Boulder also put together a resource showing step-by-step registration and account setup with ORCID.
