Beginning July 23, 2010 My NCBI tool replaces eRA Commons for Bibliography Management

NIH is now providing PD/PI’s (program directors and program investigators for us laymen) with a more efficient, accurate and user-friendly way to manage their professional bibliographies, associate publications with grant awards, and ensure 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 of their authored works, such as journal articles, manuscripts accepted for publication, books, and book chapters.

The partnership between eRA Commons and My NCBI allows Commons users to benefit from My Bibliography’s ability to populate citation data from PubMed , PubMed Central , and the NIH Manuscript Submission system , and to readily maintain accurate, structured and up-to-date bibliographic information. The improved data quality resulting from this integration enhances the ability of the NIH to manage and monitor the results of its research portfolio.

These are the REQUIRED ACTIONS:

1.     If not already established, PD/PIs must establish a My NCBI account to gain access to My Bibliography.

2.     My NCBI accounts must be linked to eRA Commons accounts.

3.     As of July 23, 2010, Commons will no longer support manual entry of citations. PD/PIs will no longer be able to type or copy and paste citation data into Commons and must enter new citations into their My NCBI accounts.

4.     As of October 22, Commons will no longer display citations that a PI has manually entered into Commons. All citations previously entered manually into Commons will be removed from the Commons system. Therefore, these citations must be added to My Bibliography so that they will continue to appear in Commons and can be associated with future annual progress reports.
