Exporting the Biosketch

Once your biosketch is complete you will want to export it to be included in the grant / funder materials. 

  1. On the SciENcv landing page select the Biosketch you want to export

    Detail of Export Document Option
  2. After you select the Biosketch you will have the opportunity to export into 3 formats - PDF, Word (only available for NIH biosketches), and XML. (If you export to Word or XML, be aware that any changes you make after exporting will affect the overall format and could cause issues with submission.)
  3. Once you select the format you want, you will see a dialogue box that shows the download process. When it is finished, the file should save to your computer; if you don’t see it, check your downloads folder.
