My Bibliography and SciENcv: How to Delegate Authority to Others to Edit/Create Your Profile and Collections

As a My NCBI account holder, you can invite other individuals to act as your delegate and grant them the ability to view and edit your My Bibliography collection (including Other Citations), as well as the ability to view, edit, and create profiles in your SciENcv.

Inviting a Delegate

The first step is to send a delegate invitation from your NCBI Account Settings page. After you’ve logged in to your NCBI account, click on your username in the top right corner of the screen to access your Account Settings. Then, under the “Delegates” section, click “Add a delegate” and enter the email address for your intended recipient. You can have multiple delegates on your account, and you can control what each delegate has access to from the Delegates section of your Account Settings page.

Acting as a Delegate

If a colleague invites you to become a delegate on their NCBI account, you will receive an email invitation. After you’ve accepted the delegation invitation, you will see your colleague’s Bibliography appear in your Collections list on your My NCBI landing page:

New SciENcv Features Allow Users To Create and Download Multiple Biosketches

NCBI’s recent update to the SciENcv feature in MyNCBI gives researchers the ability to create multiple biosketches for grants from federal agencies engaged in scientific research, allowing a more tailored and convenient approach to the grant application process.

What is SciENcv?

SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) is designed to help researchers assemble an NIH biosketch by extracting information from NIH eRA Commons and PubMed. The SciENcv interagency working group includes NIH, as well as DOD, DOE, EPA, NSF, USDA and the Smithsonian. You can access SciENcv if you have a My NCBI account. My NCBI accounts are free and offer many useful features, such as saving searches, automated e-mail alerts and My Bibliography.

 Create your biosketch

Based on user suggestions, we’ve made it possible to create biosketches in three ways: from scratch, from an external source, or by duplicating an existing profile (see Figure 1). While the eRA Commons data feed is currently the only external data option, we plan on adding other external data sources in a future release of SciENcv.
