Project Investigators and Program Directors are required to use the My Bibliography feature in My NCBI to develop lists of their publications.
Essentially, researchers must use PubMed and PubMed Central records to quickly import publication information to My Bibliography. Researchers can also manually enter citation information in My Bibliography for records that do not appear in PubMed and for conference presentations, patents, etc. References saved in My Bibliography will automatically appear in users’ eRA Commons accounts.

There are three ways to update publications lists in NCBI’s My Bibliography and Other Citations. After signing on to My NCBI, click Manage My Bibliography to access these tools.
Add from PubMed allows users to search PubMed by author, award number or text word for their own publications or other publications supported by their grants. Search results can be easily imported into My Bibliography or Other Citations.
The option to add a citation manually is a great way to incorporate many types of publications into My Bibliography, including books and chapters, meeting abstracts, presentations, patents, datasets or databases or software.
Users of citation managers such as EndNote, RefWorks, Mendeley, and Zotero can export selected citations from their libraries in a file using MEDLINE or RIS (Research Information Systems) formatting and then upload the file into My Bibliography or Other Citations using the Upload a file tool. This feature is useful for adding publications that are not indexed in PubMed.
