Professors, we know you’re busy — really, really busy. You have to develop and teach your courses and labs, coordinate and run your journal clubs and seminars, direct your lab’s research efforts, write grants and publications, counsel and mentor your students, and stay current on everything related to your teaching and research topics.
NCBI has information that can help with all of this, but there are so many interesting records and so little time to organize them. Sign up (Help) for or log in (Help) to your free NCBI Account and let us help you get started and get organized!
Read on – or watch the video embedded below – to learn more about what you can do with your NCBI Account.
Next Wednesday, Aug 8, 2018, NCBI staff will show you how to use an NCBI account to help with research and teaching tasks including:
- Making custom collections of important records for use in coursework and research projects
- Creating lists of publications or database records to send to your courses, journal clubs and research teams
- Setting automated updates when new publications or database records are available
- Maintaining your bibliography and sharing it on your Faculty Profile
- Formatting your U.S. Gov’t BioSketch with a click of a mouse
- And keeping track of everything – right on your My NCBI dashboard!
Date and time: Wed, Aug 8, 2018 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM EDT
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about attending the webinar. A few days after the live presentation, you can view the recording on the NCBI YouTube channel. You can learn about future webinars on the Webinars and Courses page.
Professors, you’re busy – really busy. You have to develop and teach your courses and laboratory sessions, coordinate your lab’s research efforts, write grants and publications, and stay current on everything related to your teaching and research topics.
NCBI has information that would help most of these efforts – but there are so many interesting records and so little time to organize them for efficient use. Sign up for a free NCBI Account and let us help you organize your important lists!
Figure 1. The My NCBI login page.
Sign up for an NCBI Account – or sign in to your account if you already have one – and:
- Store and automate your searches;
- Save and manage collections of important records for use in coursework, research projects and federal grants;
- Create public lists for students in your courses and your own Faculty Profile;
- And keep track of everything – right on your My NCBI dashboard.
Read on to find out how to do all of these things and more!
As a My NCBI account holder, you can invite other individuals to act as your delegate and grant them the ability to view and edit your My Bibliography collection (including Other Citations), as well as the ability to view, edit, and create profiles in your SciENcv.
Inviting a Delegate
The first step is to send a delegate invitation from your NCBI Account Settings page. After you’ve logged in to your NCBI account, click on your username in the top right corner of the screen to access your Account Settings. Then, under the “Delegates” section, click “Add a delegate” and enter the email address for your intended recipient. You can have multiple delegates on your account, and you can control what each delegate has access to from the Delegates section of your Account Settings page.
Acting as a Delegate
If a colleague invites you to become a delegate on their NCBI account, you will receive an email invitation. After you’ve accepted the delegation invitation, you will see your colleague’s Bibliography appear in your Collections list on your My NCBI landing page:
“The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication.” – http://publicaccess.nih.gov/
To comply with NIH Public Access Policy, here are the steps you should take:
Determine if the Public Access Policy applies to your publication
Generally, the NIH Public Access Policy applies to any peer-reviewed journal article that was accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008 and that arose from NIH funding in Fiscal Year 2008 or later.
Determine Applicability for Your Publication
What does the NIH consider to be a ‘journal’?
My Bibliography is a component of the My NCBI service and allows authors to create an online collection of their published work. While editing their bibliographies, authors can import citations for their articles directly from PubMed, and the system will automatically check for duplicates and will remove citations imported more than once. However, authors may still end up with duplicates in certain situations, and sometimes it is not obvious how to remove these duplicates. In this post we will describe three situations where duplicates may persist and will discuss ways to remove them.
