Principal Investigators and their institutions are responsible for all applicable papers that arise from their NIH funds, even if they are not an author or co-author.
We suggest that the PI determine a sustainable plan for their lab regarding PMC submission responsibilities.
Anyone submitting an application, proposal or report to the NIH must include the PMC reference number (PMCID) when citing applicable papers that they author or that arise from their NIH-funded research.
slide presentation walking through the various aspects of using the My Bibliography tool
As of July 23, 2010, PD/PIs are unable to enter citations manually into eRA Commons and must use My NCBI’s “My Bibliography” tool to manage their professional bibliographies. Citations are pulled from My Bibliography to automatically appear in users' eRA Commons accounts. My Bibliography is also required for use of the PHS 2590 progress report and the eRA Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR).
