If you do not have a My NCBI account, you will need to create one. Principal Investigators and PD's must use My NCBI's "My Bibliography" tool to manage their professional bibliographies (as of July 23, 2010, see the full notice here).
Start in PubMed
From the top right corner, click 'Sign In to NCBI'
Note: If you already have a Google account, NIH login, or NIH eRA Commons account, you can log in with those rather than creating an entirely new account. Signing in through a partner organization will automatically sync your My NCBI Account, so the easiest option is to sign in via your NIH & eRA Commons account.
If you already have a My NCBI Account, you will need to link your account to your eRA Commons account.
If you receive an error message when trying to link accounts, you may have already linked too many accounts. You will need to contact NCBI directly to have them manually link your eRA Commons account with your current My NCBI account.
