NSF Requires SciENcv for Current & Pending (Other) Support Starting October 23rd 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has partnered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to use ScieENcv as the NSF-approved format.

Effective for new proposals submitted or due on or after October 23, 2023, NSF is mandating the use of SciENcv for the preparation of Current and Pending (Other) Support information.

To get started, faculty researchers should:

  1. Login to Research. gov
  2. Set up My Bibliography
  3. Create a NSF Biosketch in SciENcv
  4. Delegate access to your department admin
  5. Work with your admin to identify projects (including outside consulting that involves the design, conduct, or reporting of research) and in-kind resources that need to be included in your Current & Pending (Other) Support document

This can take time.

When applicable, NSF will require all senior personnel on potential awards to submit updated Current & Pending Support information prior to receiving an award and as part of the annual and final reporting process. 

For more information on how to do this, please consult the resources listed below.

What is SciENcv? 

Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an online system that researchers can use to assemble and maintain biosketches and your Current & Pending (Other) Support document. You can share with others, and most importantly, the biosketch must be submitted with NIH and NSF grant applications and annual reports.

SciENcv pulls information from other systems, including MyNCBI, ORCID, and eRA Commons in order to ease administrative burden and allow researchers to quickly create and recreate a biosketch and Current & Pending (Other) Support document for each grant application or annual report.
