|The mandate to use SciENcv only for the preparation of Current and Pending (Other) Support information will go into effect for new proposals submitted or due on or after October 23, 2023. In the interim, proposers may continue to prepare and submit this document via use of SciENcv or the NSF fillable PDF. NSF, however, encourages the community to use SciENcv prior to the October 2023 implementation.
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 NIH, the NSF, and the IES, which can be used for grant submissions. In addition, the SciENcv application can be used to create the official NSF Current and Pending Support document.
NIH eRA Commons, NSF, and ORCID account holders who have linked their accounts to NCBI can populate their SciENcv profiles with the information stored in their eRA, NSF, or ORCID accounts. The information transferred to SciENcv can be changed, hidden, augmented, or deleted. SciENcv users control the content displayed in their SciENcv profiles.
NCBI started the transition to use only federated account credentials for NCBI account login on June 1st, 2021. The deadline for transitioning all NCBI accounts to 3rd-party only login is June 2022.
Becker Library can assist with specific areas of grant applications including support for NCBI My Bibliography and SciENcv.
