In NOT-OD-12-160, the NIH announced it would release an enhancement to My NCBI to facilitate reporting of publications in paper progress reports (form PHS 2590).  This feature is now available.  My Bibliography can now generate a PDF report of publications that may be printed and submitted as Section 2.2.6, Section E. Publications, of the paper PHS 2590 progress report. 

Grantees are encouraged to begin using the PDF report immediately on a voluntary basis.  Submitting the My Bibliography PDF report will be required at the same time that the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) is required for all Streamlined Non-Competing Award Process (SNAP) and Fellowship awards, expected in the Spring of 2013 (see NOT-OD-12-142). 

The My Bibliography PDF report facilitates grantee reporting in two ways.  First, it quickly provides the public access compliance status of each publication arising from the award in an easy to understand format.  Second, it ensures grant-paper associations reported on the PHS 2590 are captured in RePORTER and other NIH electronic systems.  Instructions for the PDF report are available at
