NCBI is a free account in PubMed. Your NCBI account is used to create a bibliography of an authors publications as well as track NIH Public Access Policy Compliance (aka PMCID's).
Anyone can create a free NCBI account. MD Anderson authors should login to NCBI with their eRA Commons credentials and delegate access to supporting staff. Here are instructions for delegating an NCBI account to support staff. Once an account has been delegated, the delegate will be able to see the authors My Bibliography and SciENcv profiles.
How do I sign into NCBI?
Each NCBI account has a My Bibliography. To manage someone else's My Bibliography (aka, a Faculty member's My Bibliography), they must first make you a delegate in NCBI. Once you are a delegate, you can login to your NCBI account, and you will see the author's My Bibliography in a list titled Delegated Bibliographies.
Add Citations to My Bibliography
My Bibliography can be made Public or Private. To include a link your NIH biosketch, you will need to make the bibliography public.

2. Select Manage My Bibliography. If you are supporting a Faculty member, bibliographies will appear under Delegated Bibliographies. Select the Bibliography you wish to edit.
3. Choose make your bibliography public. A pop-up will ask you if you are sure you want to make the bibliography public. Choose Ok.
4. A URL will appear underneath "Share your bibliography with this URL". The URL is permanent.
