My Bibliography (part of MyNCBI) is a tool that allows you to save your citations from PubMed, or citations entered manually, to a single list that if you wish, can be shared via download or a publicly accessible link. When creating a NIH Biosketch using the SciENcv tool, you can easily add the public link to this bibliography. The My Bibliography tool also allows you to monitor your NIH Public Access policy compliance.
My NCBI is a tool that retains user information and database preferences to provide customized services for many NCBI databases. It allows you to save searches, select display formats, filtering options, and set up automatic searches that are sent by e-mail. My NCBI includes additional features that allow for setting up preferences for displaying and filtering search results, highlighting search terms and setting LinkOut, Outside Tool and Document Delivery preferences.
Effective - May 25, 2021 Biographical Sketch changes include the requirement that "all positions and scientific appointments both domestic and foreign, including affiliations with foreign entities or governments" be listed in reverse order under section B. "This includes titled academic, professional, or institutional appointments whether or not remuneration is received, and whether full-time, part-time, or voluntary (including adjunct, visiting, or honorary)." The Personal Statement (Section A) has been revised to include research support that formerly was included under Research Support and/or Scholastic Performance (Section D). The revised Section D for Scholastic Performance is now present only on fellowship applications.
My Bibliography allows you to save references to your own publications in a bibliography. There are two ways to create a bibliography. The first is to add citations directly from PubMed and the second is to add citations manually.

Link your bibliography to your eRA Commons account in order to see if your publications are in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.
Connecting your My Bibliography to your eRA Commons account will allow you to see whether your publications comply with the NIH Public Access Policy. It will also populate the Research Support section of your Biosketch.
To connect your MyNCBI and eRA Commons accounts:
Please note - Even if you log on to MyNCBI with your eRA Commons username and password, you may still have to link your eRA Commons account to your MyNCBI account.
In NCBI, click on Manage My Bibliography. Where it says at the top - "This Bibliography is private" - click on "make it public" to make it public.
