Managing NIH Public Access Compliance using MyNCBI / MyBibliography

My Bibliography is a tool that helps you save your citations directly from PubMed or, if not found there, to manually enter citations using My Bibliography templates. My Bibliography provides a centralized place where citations are easily accessed, exported as a file, and made public to share with others.

My Bibliography facilitates the management of publication compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.  From the “Awards” view, eRA Commons users are able to see whether their publications are compliant with the Policy, start the manuscript submission process, associate their NIH extramural awards with their publications, and designate delegates to manage their bibliography via My NCBI.

eRA Commons no longer displays citations that have been manually entered into Commons.  These citations must be added to My Bibliography so that they will continue to appear in Commons and can be associated with annual progress reports (RPPR: Research Performance Progress Report).
