About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

NIH Launches Science Experts Network (SciENCV)

NIH launched a test version of Science Experts Network (SciENCV) which allows users to create a biosketch and an online professional profile to share with others. Information such as education, employment, research activities, publications, honors, grant awards, and other professional activities can be included in the SciENCV profile.

In addition, the SciENCV profile allows users to note their ORCID iDs. ORCID provides a persistent and unique author identifier number for authors. For more information on ORCID, see: Tools for Authors/Establishing Your Name.

One nice feature is that an NIH Biographical Sketch can be automatically populated by the information noted in a SciENCV profile.  As stated in the NIH Notice, NOT-OD-13-114: Availability of a Test (Beta) Version of the Science Experts Network (SciENCV):

This new electronic system will enable researchers to easily assemble the information (including expertise, employment, education and professional accomplishments) to populate an NIH biographical sketch (biosketch).  Initially, the goal of SciENCV is to reduce the burden associated with creating and maintaining federal biosketches while accommodating the need to describe scientific contributions.

Users are encouraged to test SciENCV and provide feedback. To create a SciENCVprofile, users should sign in to My NCBI.  A SciENCV profile will be automatically populated with information stored in an NIH Biographical Sketch for eRA Commons account holders who have linked their eRA account to My NCBI.

Feedback can be submitted by sending an email to: info@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
