My NCBI to Replace eRA Commons for Bibliography Management
NIH is now providing Commons users with a more efficient, accurate and user-friendly way to manage their professional bibliographies, associate publications with their grant awards, and ensure compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. As of July 23, 2010, program directors and principal investigators (PD/PIs) will be unable to enter citations manually into eRA Commons and must use My NCBI’s “My Bibliography” tool to manage their professional bibliographies.
Users can log in to My NCBI and access My Bibliography from eRA Commons, or they can log in directly to My NCBI using their Commons username and password.
- If not already established, PD/PIs must establish a My NCBI account to gain access to My Bibliography.
- My NCBI accounts must be linked to eRA Commons accounts.
- 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.
- 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.
