Effective July 23, 2010, Principal Investigators and Program Directors managing NIH funded grants must use the My NCBI My Bibliography portal to create and manage their bibliographies. eRA Commons has partnered with NCBI to assist NIH grant applicants and recipients with managing their citations and complying with the NIH Public Access Policy. Linking an eRA Commons account to a new or existing My NCBI account allows references saved in My Bibliography to automatically appear in users Commons accounts.
All NIH grant funded authors can easily manage their bibliographies and article submission process using the My Bibliography tool and linking it to their eRA Commons accounts.
