In 88 days, all NIH biosketches will have to be submitted to NIH in the new format. This means that all June submissions must include the new biosketches. The new format will allow researchers to showcase their work and better explain why the work was important and their specific role in it. Up to 25 publications can be included in a biosketch and PIs can choose to add a link to their entire body of work. The page limit has been expanded to 5 pages to provide for these additions.
Fortunately, NIH has made it relatively simple to come into compliance with these new requirements with the SciENcv tool. This tool works with the PIs eRA Commons profile and the bibliography from My NCBI and will automatically pull data from both.
PIs and their support staff have the opportunity to learn about these tools in advance of the deadline by registering for classes sponsored by Moody Medical Library and Research Services. The classes will explain how to set-up My Bibliography and SciENcv to make it easier for PIs AND their staff to create biosketches that can be changed easily to be most relevant for any NIH submission.
Classes will be held face-to-face and online and are scheduled as follows:
