    Creating and Using Your ORCID iD
    (2023-04-12) Lapka, Stefanie
    Historically a particular author's contribution to the scientific literature or publications has been hard to recognize as most personal names are not unique, they can change (such as with marriage), have cultural differences in name order, contain inconsistent use of first-name abbreviations and employ different writing systems. ORCID addresses this problem by providing a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. Creating an ORCID iD allows authors to obtain credit for their work – grants, publications, peer review, affiliations, and more. Stefanie Lapka, Health Sciences Librarian, will teach how to create your ORCID iD and set up and manage your ORCID record.

    Developing Biosketches: How to Create a Biosketch for NIH/NSF Grant Proposals
    (2023-03-22) Lapka, Stefanie
    Biosketches are a key component of most major grant proposal packages, highlighting the skills and experiences of the principal investigator (PI), key personnel, and core project team members. Similar to a curriculum vitae, biosketches are used by grant proposal reviewers to assess whether the researcher(s) has demonstrated the ability to successfully complete the project they are proposing. Biosketches must conform to specific formats, both in terms of content and required ordering, with requirements varying by funding agency and project type. The National Institute of Health (NIH) Biosketch is the most common format. Stefanie Lapka, health sciences librarian, will teach how to create NIH Biosketches that adhere to agency requirements and connect to publication histories using the tools SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae), My Bibliography, and ORCID.
