Important Updates

  • MyNCBI is now required by NIH to use when reporting publications in annual reports.
  • NIH is also looking to better track both graduate students and post docs funded with NIH money.  They now require Commons registration for any graduate student or post doc paid on NIH grants.  This will become evident as these individuals are included in the personnel report within the annual progress report.  If the individuals do not have a Commons registration, the progress report will be delayed until registration is complete. 

  • All publications must have PMCID’s if they were NIH funded publications, this includes Biosketch’s and Bibliography’s. This information should be included before submission. Click here for a list of journals that submit to PubMed Central on behalf of the author.
