ARS employees can request a SCINet account by filling out an online form (eAuthentication required). Anyone with a usda.gov email address working for ARS should use this form. It may take up to ten business days to create an account after the request is approved by the supervisor.
Note: if you have a usda.gov email address but are not an ARS employee (e.g., if you are an ORISE postdoctoral fellow or a summer intern), then your sponsor at ARS will need to complete the non-ARS Employee form below. Additionally, please make sure that you are logged into your USDA Office 365 account prior to accessing either of the forms below otherwise you may receive an error.
Non-ARS Employees require an ARS employee sponsor to obtain a SCINet account. Please contact your sponsor and request that they complete the online form on your behalf (eAuthentication required). It may take up to ten business days to create an account after the request is approved by the sponsor’s supervisor.
The ARS sponsor will need your:
- Full name
- Phone number
- Office address
- Affiliation(s) with ARS. They will need to enter agreement type(s) (e.g., RSA, NARA), agreement number(s), and agreement title(s) or grant, if applicable. If other, please indicate any formal relationship between the sponsor and sponsored party e.g. advisory committee.
