    • The adoption of ORCID identifiers by funding organizations Walter (Wally) Schaffer, PhD Senior Scientific Advisor for Extramural Research, U.S. National Institutes of Health http://orcid.org/0000-0002-2276-4656 123 April 2014
    • NIH - ACD Working Group on the Biomedical Research Workforce • Chaired by Shirley Tilghman (Princeton) and Sally Rockey (NIH) • Modeling Subcommittee chaired by Bruce Weinberg (OSU) and Donna Ginther (KU) • Charge • Develop a model for a sustainable and diverse U.S. biomedical research workforce • Make recommendations to support a future sustainable biomedical infrastructure.
    • Comprehensive NIH Tracking Options • Extend Requirement for NIH eRA Commons Accounts • Current Requirement • Students and Postdocs  On NRSA Since 1974  Comprehensive evaluation studies  NRSA service payback  Legally enforceable • NIH Reform Act of 2006  Evaluate Postdocs (and students) as for NRSA  Require Commons Account for Postdocs beginning in FY 2010 – http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not-od-09-140.html • Extend to students on NIH projects • Capture in annual progress report • Implement for October 2014
    • Comprehensive NIH Tracking Options (cont.) • NRSA Research Training Tables • Automate • Build on NIEHS/FIC CareerTrac and NINDS Trainee Tracking System • Share database with Program Directors • Prepopulate with existing eRA Commons and Appointment data • Information available to reviewers • Information also available to analysts for tracking and evaluation • Once built  Extend reporting period to 15 years  Include all students and postdocs that participate in the training
    • Comprehensive NIH Tracking Options (cont.) • Enhance SciENcv – Create on-line, structured biosketches • NLM/NCBI,  Eight Federal Agencies,  Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) • Create auto-populated, CV-like data collection • Generate biosketches for Federal grants for any agency • Unambiguous, claimed links between researchers - their grants and – their scientific output • Available as beta version • Substantial NIH update by the end of Spring • Eventually replace biosketch images • NSF added by October
    • SciENcv Beta Version, Introduced September 2013 Inputs ORCID eRA Commons NCBI My Bibliography Output NIH & NSF Biosketch
    • Connecting your ORCID
    • Comprehensive NIH Tracking Options (cont.) • Use Open Researcher and Contributor IDs (ORCID) • Some publishers & funders encourage or require ORCID IDs • Brisk adoption • Portal to ORCID within SciENcv • Users consume ORCID and associate ORCIDs with publications and grants • Help identify individuals and their scientific contributions • Facilitate identification of individuals across systems (agency to agency) http://orcid.org/0000-0002-2276-4656
    • Biosketch PDF export
    • Plans for SciENcv Enhancements • Maintain Multiple NIH biosketches – clone from existing • Describe scientific contributions • Non-publication output – prepopulate RPPR-Section C • Users pull data from external profile systems (e.g., VIVO) • Variable levels of information exposure • API transfer data to/from EndNote, Scopus, Linked In, etc. • Allow delegates to enter data • Additional output options • Revised biosketch pilot • Add NSF by October 2014
