How to Delegate Other Authorized Users to SciENcv

Delegating My NCBI Authorization

As a My NCBI account holder, you can invite other individuals to act as your delegate and grant them the ability to view and edit your My Bibliography collection (including Other Citations), as well as the ability to view, edit, and create profiles in your SciENcv.

Inviting a Delegate

The first step is to send a delegate invitation from your NCBI Account Settings page. After you’ve logged in to your NCBI account, click on your username in the top right corner of the screen to access your Account Settings (see Figure 1).

Then, under the “Delegates” section, click “Add a delegate” and enter the email address for your intended recipient (see Figure 2). You can have multiple delegates on your account, and you can control what each delegate has access to from the Delegates section of your Account Settings page.

Acting as a Delegate

If a colleague invites you to become a delegate on their NCBI account, you will receive an email invitation (see Figure 3). Click the email's link to continue to the acceptance portal (see Figure 4.)

After you’ve accepted the delegation invitation, you will see your colleague’s My Bibliography (see Figure 5) and SciENcv (see Figure 6) accounts on your My NCBI landing page.
