NIH Requires New Biosketch Format for Due Dates on or After January 25, 2015
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently announced that a new biosketch format will be required for all applications submitted for FY2016 funding, which begins with due dates of January 25, 2015.
The NIH has been piloting a planned modification of the biosketch since June 2012. The new format increases the page limit from 4 to 5 pages and increases the number of peer-reviewed publications from 15 to 20.
The new format allows investigators to include a link to a complete listing of their publications in SciENcv or My Bibliography. Within the next few weeks, the NIH will update SciENcv to accommodate the new biosketch format.
Visit the NIH website under the heading “Additional Format Pages” to obtain templates for the new biosketch format: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/424/index.htm.
Local Assistance Available with New Biosketch Formatting
Contact Kathy Blazer, Interim Director, Cleveland Health Sciences Library, (216-368-1361 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in having Kathy conduct a departmental information session, or to answer individual questions.
