This guide adapted from "Using SciENcv to Create Your Biosketch" created by Hillary Davis and Jason Ronallo of North Carolina State University. Our thanks to NCSU Libraries for granting permission to re-use and modify this resource.
Once your biosketch is complete you will want to export it to be included in the grant / funder materials.
1. On the SciENcv landing page, select the Biosketch that you want to export.
2. After you select the Biosketch you will have the opportunity to export into 3 formats - PDF, Word (only available for NIH biosketches), and XML. (If you export to Word or XML, be aware that any changes you make after exporting will affect the overall format and could cause issues with submission.)
3. Once you select the format you want, you will see a dialogue box that shows the download process. When it is finished, the file should save to your computer; if you don’t see it, check your Downloads folder.
As of January 30, 2023, the NSF requires that Biosketches and Current and Pending (Other) Support documents are certified as accurate, current, and complete. This Certification process occurs when Biosketches and Current and Pending (Other) Support documents are downloaded as PDF files.
Please note: Biosketches must be certified by the Senior (key) personnel when the Biosketch is complete and downloaded prior to its upload as part of the proposal (via Research.gov or Grants.gov). Senior (key) personnel must be logged into their SciENcv account to generate this completed version of the Biosketch form – delegates to a researcher’s SciENcv account may assist in editing the Biosketch but cannot certify the form’s accuracy, currency and completeness on behalf of the researcher. Only the researcher, logged into their SciENcv account, can certify the form.
