NIH REMINDER: Act Now to Retain eRA Commons Citations
eRA Commons and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) have partnered together to provide one comprehensive online bibliography portal.
NCBI’s “My NCBI” system boasts a feature called “My Bibliography,” where users can create and store professional citations. As of July 23, 2010, PD/PIs are no longer able to enter citations manually into eRA Commons and must use My Bibliography to enter and maintain any citations they wish to have available in Commons.
In order to complete the integration of eRA Commons and My NCBI, citations that have been manually entered into Commons will be unavailable as of October 22, 2010. This includes citations that a Commons user has typed or copied and pasted directly into Commons, which are identified in Commons by a citation source of “PD/PI Entered.” To retain these citations (i.e. for use in a future progress report), PD/PIs must transfer them to a My NCBI account. Several demos released this summer provide PD/PIs with step-by-step instructions for creating a My NCBI account and linking it to a Commons account, as well as other aspects of this systems integration.For My NCBI-specific questions, please contact My NCBI.
