My Bibliography is a reference tool available from the My NCBI account. It lets authors save their citations to a centralized location. Citations can be added to My Bibliography directly from PubMed, a file, or entered manually. When the My NCBI account is linked to an eRA Commons account, it lets authors manage public access compliance for their publications, including associating awards with publications and editing compliance status.
My Bibliography can be accessed by way of PubMed. Click the Login button located in the top right of PubMed's homepage to access My NCBI and the My Bibliography reference tool.
Check Compliance Status
Authors can check the compliance status of publications anytime by accessing their My Bibliography. Each citation with associated funding will display a compliance status tag. Compliance status tags include:
|Green||Compliant and complete; has a PMCID|
|Red||Non-compliant or not defined; does not have a PMCID|
|Blue||Newly submitted to NIHMS and in process; does not have a PMCID, but has a NIHMS article ID number (which can be used for provisional compliance reporting)|
|Gray||Not applicable and exempt from the policy|
You can view only applicable publications (those to which the NIH PAP applies) by selecting the Public Access Compliance option from the Sort by menu.
Manage Compliance Status
Authors can begin the compliance process for non-compliant publications.
Not Defined Publications
Publications tagged as Not defined have to be identified as supported or not supported by NIH grants; click the Edit Status link to confirm that the publication was partly or wholly supported by NIH grants.
