Want to submit federal grant applications quickly and easily? Check out our new and improved SciENcv experience! Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an electronic system that helps you assemble professional information needed to apply for federal grant support.
Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an electronic system that helps you assemble professional information needed to apply for federal grant applications. Starting January 2023, we will be introducing a new and improved SciENcv experience!
SciENcv helps you gather and compile information on expertise, employment, education, and professional accomplishments. You can use SciENcv to create and maintain financial documents and biosketches that are submitted with grant applications.
Why should I use SciENcv?
Eliminates the need to repeatedly enter biosketch and financial document information
Reduces the administrative burden associated with federal grant submission and reporting requirements
Allows you to describe your scientific contributions in your own words

Customize the MSA Viewer to Make Your Analysis Easier
We’re constantly improving the Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) Viewer. This video demonstrates several new and popular features, including the ability to change data columns, hide selected rows, analyze polymorphisms, and more.
As we announced previously, the way you log into your My NCBI account will change from your My NCBI username and password to a 3rd-party login. On June 22, we disabled the ability to create new My NCBI passwords and in July we launched the Password Retirement Wizard, which will activate when you login here with a native NCBI password. (Figure 1).
Figure 1. The Password Retirement Wizard screens. The wizard will offer you the option (opt-in) to change your password to a 3rd party login when you sign in at https://account.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/migrate/ with a native NCBI password. You may choose from any of the available 3rd party accounts. Clicking on an option will take you to the sign-in screen for on the 3rd party website.
The password you set at NCBI to log in to My NCBI, SciENcv, My Bibliography, or submit data to NCBI, will be going away. You will soon have to link a third-party login (e.g. eRA Commons, Google, Microsoft, or a university or institutional log in) to access your account. Join us on July 28, 2021 at 12PM eastern time to learn learn what you need to do link a third-party login using our Wizards, get an updated timeline for the transition third-party logins, and get answers to your questions.

Update: Based on feedback we have received, we are moving the date when creating new accounts with 3rd-party credentials is required to June 2021. We will provide more details in the coming weeks.
As mentioned in a previous blog post, we are transitioning to using 3rd party logins for all My NCBI accounts. We are doing this because NIH, NLM, and NCBI take your privacy and security very seriously. Transitioning to 3rd parties who have modern and industry-standard security practices ensures that you have the highest level of security and enables us to focus our resources on improving your experience once you log in.
The next step in this transition process is to disable the ability to create usernames and passwords directly in NCBI. Beginning in June 2021 new accounts must be created with 3rd-party credentials, but don’t worry! We are working hard to make sure you have a variety of sign in options. In the past few months, we’ve added nearly 4000 InCommon sign in options along with Microsoft and Facebook. This is in addition to the options we had previously, like ORCID, eRA Commons, and Login.gov.
If you have questions about this transition or using 3rd-party usernames and passwords for your NCBI account, you can:
Update: Please see our FAQ page for more information and updates.
Do you login to NCBI to use MyNCBI, SciENcv, or MyBibliography? Do you submit data to NCBI? If so, you’ll want to read further to get a first glimpse at some important changes to NCBI accounts that will be coming in 2021.
In brief, NCBI will be transitioning to federated account credentials. NCBI-managed credentials are the username and password you set at NCBI — these will be going away. Federated account credentials are those set through eRA Commons, Google, or a university or institutional point of access.
Why is this happening?
NIH, NLM, and NCBI take your privacy and security very seriously. As part of our normal reviews we have determined that making this change will increase the security of your accounts to a level that we feel is necessary.
When is this happening?
After June 1, 2021, you will no longer be able to use NCBI-managed credentials to login to NCBI.
Join us on June 24 to learn how to use My Bibliography and SciENcv, My NCBI applications that help you to create biographical sketches for grant applications for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Institute of Education Sciences (IES). You will learn how create a profile, add citations and import information from 3rd party accounts like ORCiD

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about attending the webinar. A few days after the live presentation, you can view the recording on the NCBI YouTube channel. You can learn about future webinars on the Webinars and Courses page.
Professors, we know you’re busy — really, really busy. You have to develop and teach your courses and labs, coordinate and run your journal clubs and seminars, direct your lab’s research efforts, write grants and publications, counsel and mentor your students, and stay current on everything related to your teaching and research topics.
NCBI has information that can help with all of this, but there are so many interesting records and so little time to organize them. Sign up (Help) for or log in (Help) to your free NCBI Account and let us help you get started and get organized!
