Principal investigators must use MyNCBI's My Bibliography feature to manage their professional bibliographies and compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. In order to begin using My Bibliography, you must link your eRA Commons account to your MyNCBI account. Linking the two accounts will allow you to connect funding information from eRA Commons to bibliography information in MyNCBI.
1. Sign in to NCBI using your MyNCBI login if you already have an existing account. If you do not have a MyNCBI account, you may use your eRA Commons to log in by clicking the "NIH Login" button.
2. When you are logged in, click on your username in the top right hand corner of the page to access your Account Settings. Look for the "Linked Account" section. If your eRA Commons account is not linked, click the Change button to access it.
3. On the Linked Accounts page, scroll down the list of Available Partner Accounts until you locate "NIH & eRA Commons." Click the link to be redirected to the eRA Commons login page. Once you have logged in, eRA Commons will be added to your Linked Accounts list. You can also use this menu to link your MyNCBI account to your Google login or UCLA BOL login. To unlink a linked account, click the x button next to the account's name in your Linked Accounts list.
