How to use SciENcv to create your NIH or NSF Biosketch

Linking Information from ORCID

ORCID enables transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations by providing a unique, persistent identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. Using an ORCID iD allows your manuscripts, grants, and other scholarship to be more discoverable and integrated within larger research networks.

The easiest way to populate your SciENcv biosketch is through an ORCID iD.  If you do not yet have an ORCID iD, go to ORCID @ UA, create a new ORCID iD and connect it to The University of Arizona. If you already have a ORCID iD, you can connect your iD to UA.

ORCID at UA sign-up

When you’re ready to link your ORCID iD with SciENcv, go back to your My NCBI account and sign in again (if you are logged out) and follow these steps:

1. On your My NCBI landing page, click on your username in the upper right corner.

2. Use the Change button under Linked Accounts to add your ORCID account.
