For anyone awarded NIH funding, you must use My NCBI's My Bibliography tool to save your citations either directly from PubMed or by manually entering them. This is an important part of the submission and reporting process.
Once citations are in My Bibliography you can easily see if your publications comply with the NIH Public Access Policy, start the compliance process for journal articles, associate publications to awards.
My NCBI offers many other useful features, including saving PubMed searches (and having search results sent to you), saving collections of citations found in PubMed, and customization of the filters and results display in PubMed.
If you receive an error message when trying to link accounts you may have linked too many accounts already! Email NCBI to have them manually link your eRA Commons account with your My NCBI account.
Include the following in your email: MyNCBI username, eRA Commons username, and email address
The eRA linked account icon verifies that an eRA account has been linked to an NCBI account. The citation compliance status bar will show how many publications have a status that is not defined, non-compliant, in process, and complete.
