Reporting your research output to institutions, for tenure and promotion, and for grant applications can be a pain. The Health Sciences Library provides support for several tools that will make it easier for you to efficiently keep track of your research output using ORCID, Colorado PROFILES, myNCBI, and SciENcv.
ORCID IDs are 16 digit identification numbers provide unique identifier to link you and your research output
- Claiming your ID takes less than a minute: just enter your name, email address, and a password and you'll get an ORCID ID.
- This ID is useful because it can be applied to your research output even if you never fill out your profile
- It also helps with disambiguation, or discerning your output from that of others with similar names
- Filling out your profile provides you with an online CV with a short web link. (Example http://orcid.org/0000-0003-3185-7034)
- Importing your citations is automated, using citation indices like CrossRef and Scopus
- Add your "aliases" if you've undergone a name change
- Attaching your ORCID ID to publications, grant proposals and dataset that you publish assures that you get credit for your work.
For faculty and staff: Use Colorado PROFILES to let potential collaborators know what you do! This research profile is autopopulated by an algorithm that finds your publications in PubMed. Log in to curate your publication list and add awards and an overview statement about your research.
myNCBI: Keep all of your citations in one spot using my Bibliography
SciENcv: Tired of entering your information into Word Templates to create Biosketches for grant proposals?
- SciENcv is an electronic Biosketch that can be modified to fit NIH and NSF formats
- It stores your basic information so it doesn't have to be repeatedly re-entered
- Use and existing Biosketch as a template
- Link to your ORCID account to Import data
- Import data from eRA commons
- Include a link to your full citation list in my Bibliography
