Managing your citations through MyNCBI can save you a lot of time and searching if you’re using it to build your bibliography. You can easily associate publications in your constructed bibliography with your funded research, making progress reports and access compliance that much simpler.
To add a publication to your bibliography via PubMed, be sure you are signed in to MyNCBI before you begin your search. Once you are signed in to MyNCBI and in the PubMed environment, run a search to find your article (“Author Search” is one of the quickest ways to find what you are looking for). Select the citations you want to add to My Bibliography and then click the “Send to” link to expand the drop-down menu. Select the destination “My Bibliography” (a message indicates the number of citations selected to be copied to your bibliography) and click “Add to My Bibliography:”
You will have the option to save these to your “My Bibliography” or “Other Citations” list (or another list you have created). Most choose to save their own publications to “My Bibliography.” You’ll see them in your “My Bibliography” when you return to your MyNCBI home page.
If your added citation is not already associated with your award, you can do it manually. To do so, be sure your “Display” settings are set to view by “Award:”
Choose the publication that needs assignment and the award to which it needs to be assigned; click “Assign Awards”:
You’ll be given the option to choose from more awards. Keep yours checked or choose more and click “Save:”
And you’re done! If you have any questions on how to build yourself a usable bibliography through MyNCBI, feel free to reach out to RAS. Having accurate bibliographies will help you if you’re using SciENcv, too!
