Set up an ORCID Account

The NIH, AHRQ, and CDC announced in July 2019 that individuals who receive research training, fellowship, research education, and career development awards will be required to have ORCID iDs beginning in fiscal year 2020. They are like social security numbers for researchers. ORCID iDs are also required by many top funders and journal publishers, so register in just 30 seconds today, then follow the steps below to claim your publications!

Claim your Publications using CrossRef:

  1. In your ORCID record, select “Add Works”, then "Search & Link." Note: You may also try "Scopus-Elsevier" (linking Scopus iDs to ORCID iDs to claim publications more quickly is possible) or "Add Manually" if your publications are not found in CrossRef.
  2. Choose “CrossRef Metadata Search” and search for your name or a publication title. Note: It helps to use the search filters.
  3. From the CrossRef Metadata Search results page, select “Add to ORCID” for articles you have authored.
  4. To be notified via email when any additional publications are available, click on your name in the upper right hand corner, "Settings," then "Sync with ORCID."
  5. When you are done, click on your name in the upper right hand corner and then “ORCID record."
  6. Log in to ORCID and update your profile as needed.

Note: You may see the public view of your record by selecting “View public version” underneath your name in the left menu pane. You may also copy the public URL to add it to web pages.

Add ORCID iD to a Scholars@Duke Profile

  1. Log in to the OIT Account Self-Service Portal
  3. Select “Register your ORCID iD”
  4. Select “Create or Connect your ORCID iD”
  5. Authorize ORCID to share your ID with Duke.

Suggestions for Adding an ORCID iD to LinkedIn
From "Add Profile Section" (underneath your LinkedIn profile photo), you may choose to include the URL to your public ORCID record in your Intro or add it to the "Publications” section found under “Accomplishments." In the publication title field, you may write “See my publications at: [Enter your ORCID public profile URL here]."

SciENcv for Biosketches

A biographical sketch (also referred to as biosketch) describes an individual's qualifications and experience for a specific role in a project. Both NIH and NSF requires submission of a biosketch for each proposed senior/key personnel and other significant contributor on a grant application. SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) lets users easily create an online professional profile i.e., biosketches for NIH and NSF grant applications.

As of October 23, 2023, NSF grant applicants must use SciENcv to create NSF biosketches & for current and pending support documents.

In January 2025, NIH will also require the use of SciENcv. NIH has been working with NSF and other federal agencies on developing Common Forms for the Biosketch and Current and Pending (Other) Support.


Getting started creating a Biosketch using SciENcv


Users can also access SciENcv by visiting the SciENcv website.
