How Do I Use My NCBI?

Creating a MyNCBI account

My NCBI is a tool that retains user information and database preferences to provide customized services for many NCBI databases. It allows you to save searches, select display formats, filtering options, and set up automatic searches that are sent by e-mail. My NCBI includes other features that help you save your citations and manage peer reviewed article compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy (My Bibliography), create an online professional profile (SciENcv), highlight search terms, and set up LinkOut, Outside Tool and Document Delivery preferences.

NOTE: Starting June 1, 2021, users of NCBI accounts will be required to use third party logins (institutional accounts like PSU, eRA Commons or ORCiD) rather than using direct NCBI login.  If you have questions, please contact the guide owner.
