ORCID and SciENcv Training

June 22, 2022

The most recent version of the NSF’s Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 23-1, requires SciENcv for the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support(C&P) documents in proposals and progress reports effective January 2023. This is in response to federal sponsors  striving to harmonize as per National Security Presidential Memorandum 33(NSPM 33), which is a directive from the President of the United States requiring all federal funding agencies to strengthen and standardize disclosure requirements for federally funded awards.

NSF is Princeton’s largest sponsor. With this change, the NSF fillable PDF for each of the Biosketch and C &P documents will no longer be allowed; if SciENcv is not used to generate a Biosketch  and C&P as of January 2023, the research.gov system will prevent submission of the proposal or progress report.  For this transition to SciENcv,  NSPM 33 encourages individuals to obtain an ORCID ID  and use ORCID to facilitate pre-population of their biographical sketch in SciENcv. For progress reports submitted after January 2023,  if there has been a change in a PI or Co-PI’s other support, a revised C&P prepared in SciENcv  must be submitted with the progress report.

To assist the research administration community in meeting the above-referenced NSF requirement, the Office of Research and Project Administration(ORPA), in collaboration with Princeton Research Data Service (PRDS), will be offering an introductory session on ORCID/SciENcv on June 27th from 1pm-2:30pm via ZOOM.  The introductory session is a mandatory prerequisite for relevant research administration staff in academic departments and centers to participate in hands-on, small-group workshops starting in July 2022.  The focus of the workshops will be populating researcher ORCID accounts  so publication and appointment data can be fed into SciENcv .

You can  register for the introductory class at this link.  The primary contact for ORCID and SciENcv at PRDS is Neggin Keshavarzian.  The primary contact for ORCID and SciENcv at ORPA is Francine Taylor.  Feel free to proactively reach out to schedule workshop classes.

This introductory class on June 27th    will be recorded. The class covers the following content: 

  1. Summary of federal mandates(NSF requirements and NSPM 33)
  2. Create an ORCID account (see our help guide)
  3. Grant delegate access (“trusted individual access”) in ORCID ( steps are here)
  4. Log into SciENcv: Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (nih.gov) using one of the 3rd party options, we recommend using Login.gov, NSF, ERA commons, or ORCID.
  5. Grant delegate access in SciENcv (steps are here)
  6. Link your ORCID ID to your SciENcv account (steps are here)
