Managing Grant-Funded Publications: Using the SciENcv system

Provides instructions for managing grant-funded publications. Includes: submitting to PubMed Central; managing publications in My Bibliography; using SciENcv; and how to associate a publication with a grant

What is SciENcv?

SciENcv amalgamates information about a scientist's education, employment, publications etc to enable the creation of biosketches for grant applications etc.

SciENcv is being built by NCBI as part of a working group composed of the following agencies, Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation (NSF), The Smithsonian, and the United States Department of Agriculture. The interagency workgroup operates under the National Science and Technology Council’s (NSTC) Research Business Models and Science of Science Policy Committees.

Using SciENcv

SciENcv can be accessed from your my NCBI homepage.

If it's not there click Customize this page and check the box for SciENcv

From the front page of SciENcv you can create new biosketches by clicking Create New Profile

You have three options to create a new profile, From Scratch, From an External Source, From an Existing Profile



In most cases From an external source will be the most commonly used tab.

Choose an appropriate name for the biosketch and from Type of profile select New NIH Biosketch and form External Source select eRA Commons and click Create


From the next page you can add all the text necessary to create the biosketch

 Section C is the new Contribution to Science section where you can add a number of contributions along with the citations related to each


The description is entered here


And the citations selected from here

Once the biosketch is completed click on SciENcv at the top of the page to return to the main page.
