SciENcv/My Bibliography and the Biosketch

My Bibliography

My Bibliography is a reference tool found in PubMed. Sign up for a free My NCBI account to start My Bibliography. The user can save citations found in PubMed, manually upload a citation file (e.g. from an EndNote library) or manually add. It is a centralized place to keep publications that can be shared with the public, kept private and used in a Biosketch. My Bibliography can link to an eRA account. 

What can you do if you have multiple accounts in My NCBI?
To unify multiple accounts write to the NCBI help desk at and include the following in your message:

  • NCBI username,
  • eRA Commons username (if any)
  • any email addresses that may be associated with your account(s)

The help desk will merge these accounts into a single account. All existing linked accounts will transfer to the single account. The single account will contain all contents of the accounts including saved searches, collections, bibliography entries and any other information stored in NCBI.
