A researcher profile system for all individuals who apply for, receive or are associated with research investments from federal agencies. SciENcv is available in My NCBI. SciENcv is a cooperative project requested by the Federal Demonstration Partnersh

SciENcv: Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae

Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is a researcher platform built by NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) for researchers to highlight their expertise, their current projects, and their research endeavors.

SciENcv saves researchers time via Biosketches on grant submissions and project reporting across the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) platforms. Researchers can with accounts at eRA Commons, NSF, OrcID, whose accounts are linked to NCBI, can update their SciENcv profiles creation contained in those other account.  Once the SciENcv account is updated per either of these other accounts, that information can be edited in to suite the researchers needs without impacting the data or profiles of the other systems.

How to Create a SciENcv Account

Researchers must comply with the new NIH biosketch format and SciENcv is the platform make this happen.

Create a SciENcv profile - using the eRA Commons or ORCiD platforms. Profile information is automatically drawn in

Complete the following sections of SciENcv to be in compliance:


To create a SciENcv account for yourself, go to NCBI and login using the eRA Commons login button, if you have an account.  After entering your username and password you will be redirected to NCBI.


Create an NCBI account for yourself.

  1. Register for a free account through NCBI
  2. Get added to your researcher or faculty member's profile as a delegate. Click here for instructions on adding a delegate.  You'll need to confirm the request via email.
  3. Sign in to NCBI, where you will be redirected to the SciENcv homepage. To access your dashboard, click on myNCBI in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
  4. You will see your faculty/researcher profile under Delegated CVs at the bottom of the screen.

Researchers can login using their eRA Commons login, their NSF login, or their myNCBI login.

Using your OrcID account to populate your SciENcv profile.

Login to myNCBI using 3rd party sin in options:

Type OrcID

Click the link for OrcID

You should see your myNCBI landing page at this point:

In the bottom right-hand corner you can get started with SciENcv:

Click Manage SciENcv:

You can now edit existing Biosketches or Create New Documents.
