NIH has published a new format for its biosketch, required for all grant and cooperative agreement applications submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015.
Changes to the format include:
SciENcv is a tool that researchers can use to create a biosketch for NIH grant applications, as well as other federal agencies. SciENcv is not required to create the biosketch, but it is a useful tool for assembling the information required for the new biosketch. Researchers can access SciENcv through their My NCBI accounts.
SciENcv allows researchers to create profiles by entering information manually; by importing data from eRA Commons, ORCID, or NSF; or by copying an existing profile.
In addition to the NCBI video tutorial below, detailed information about using SciENcv to create a biosketch can be found in NCBI's help documentation.
