New NIH Policy: Use NCBI/PubMed's My Bibliography to Manage Your Professional Bibliography
If you are PD/PI on an NIH-funded project, or soon expect to be, there is an upcoming change to bibliography management that affects you.
Beginning July 23, 2010, NIH-funded PIs will need to use the NCBI/PubMed My Bibliography tool to track their publications, rather than entering them manually through eRA Commons. My Bibliography is part of the My NCBI toolbox in PubMed. Current eRA Commons users can link their eRA Commons account to My Bibliography.
Beginning October 22, 2010, eRA Commons will no longer display citations manually entered. By that date, all citations must be added to My Bilbliography so that they will continue to appear in eRA Commons.
If you save searches or create email alerts in PubMed, you already have a My NCBI account; use that log-in to assure that all your My NCBI activities are under one account.
The NIH offers a step by step guide to help you get started using My Bibliography. Additionally, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) has created a tutorial on how you can use My Bibliogrpahy to check the Public Access compliance status of your papers.
