The NIH Manuscript Submission System
The NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMS) is tool for authors and publishers to deposit electronic version of peer-reviewed final manuscripts for inclusion in PubMed Central. Papers in the NIHMS are assigned an identifier (NIHMSID). The NIHMS provides a process overview, illustrated tutorials, and FAQs.
My NCBI and My Bibliography
My NCBI is a tool that retains user information and database preferences to provide customized services for many services operated by the National Library of Medicine's National Center for Biotechnology Information, including PubMed, PubMed Central and SciENcv. With a My NCBI account you can select display formats, set filtering options, and save automatic searches with results sent by e-mail. My NCBI also includes the bibliography management system My Bibliography.
With My Bibliography you can save your citations (journal articles, books/chapters, patents, presentations, and meetings) directly from PubMed or, if not found there, you can manually enter the citations using My Bibliography templates. NIH extramural investigators use My Bibliography to track compliance with the NIH public access policy and report peer-reviewed publications to NIH.
