Important Message for NIH Program Directors and Principal Investigators!

From MLA-Focus, Publication from the Medical Library Association

"NIH Public Access Policy Citation Management Tool
Beginning July 23, 2010, program directors and principal investigators must use My NCBI’s “My Bibliography” tool to manage their professional bibliographies. They will no longer be able to enter citations manually into eRA Commons.
To ease investigators’ bibliography management, improve data quality, and ensure compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy, eRA Commons has linked to the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s (NCBI’s) personal online tool, “My NCBI.” Using “My Bibliography,” users can maintain and manage a list of all types of their authored works, such as articles, presentations, and books.
For more information on how investigators should handle the upcoming changes, see notice number NOT-OD-10-103. Read the step-by-step guide for how to set up a “My NCBI” account and access “My Bibliography.” You can also see the National Library of Medicine tutorial, “Using My Bibliography to Manage Compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy,” for more details."
