NIH Public Access Policy: My NCBI Tool to Replace eRA Commons for Bibliography Management

As of July 23, 2010, program directors and principal investigators (PD/PIs) will not be able to enter citations manually into eRA Commons and must use My NCBI’s “My Bibliography” tool to manage their professional bibliographies.

In the interest of easing investigators’ bibliography management, improving data quality, and ensuring compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy, eRA Commons has partnered with the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) to link NCBI’s personal online tool, “My NCBI,” to Commons. My NCBI offers an online portal—“My Bibliography”—for users to maintain and manage a list of all types of their authored works, such as articles, presentations and books.

For more information, contact the HSLS reference desk, your Liaison Librarian, or e-mail Ask A Librarian.
