New NIH requirement to use My NCBI's "My Bibliography" instead of eRA Commons for bibliography management

NIH recently announced a new requirement for Project Investigators and Program Directors related to their publications listed in eRA Commons. As of July 23, 2010, PIs and PDs are required to use the My Bibliography feature in My NCBI to develop their publications lists.

NIH lists three goals for this change: ease investigators’ bibliography management, improve data quality, and ensure compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.

Essentially, researchers will no longer manually enter citations in eRA Commons and will use PubMed and PubMed Central records to quickly import publication information to My Bibliography. Researchers can also manually enter citation information in My Bibliography for records that do not appear in PubMed and for conference presentations, patents, etc. References saved in My Bibliography will automatically appear in users’ eRA Commons accounts.

Gina Della Porta and Lori Delaney want to support Carolina Population Center researchers with this new requirement. Please contact one of them if you have any questions or want assistance.
