Important Changes to NCBI Accounts Coming in 2021

[This article first appeared on the NCBI Insights Blog January 5, 2021.]  

Do you login to NCBI to use MyNCBI, SciENcv, or MyBibliography? Do you submit data to NCBI? If so, you’ll want to read further to get a first glimpse at some important changes to NCBI accounts that will be coming in 2021.

What’s happening?

In brief, NCBI will be transitioning to federated account credentials. NCBI-managed credentials are the username and password you set at NCBI — these will be going away. Federated account credentials are those set through eRA Commons, Google, or a university or institutional point of access.

Why is this happening?

NIH, NLM, and NCBI take your privacy and security very seriously. As part of our normal reviews we have determined that making this change will increase the security of your accounts to a level that we feel is necessary.

When is this happening?

After June 1, 2021, you will no longer be able to use NCBI-managed credentials to login to NCBI.

What do I need to do?

If you currently use a federated login to access your NCBI account, you don’t have to do anything! Just be aware that if you also access your account with an NCBI-managed username and password, that route will be going away.

If you only have NCBI-managed credentials and you’d like to get a head start on this transition, you can do the following now:

  1. Login to NCBI the way you usually do.
  2. Click on your username in the top bar to load your NCBI Account Settings page.
  3. If your Settings page looks like Figure 1, where you have a “Native NCBI Account” username and password and have no linked accounts, then you will need to add a linked account.
  4. To add a linked account, click the “Change” button under Linked Accounts.
  5. You may choose several options for a linked account including the following:
  • Google
  • University/institutional
NCBI Accounts Settings page.
Figure 1. NCBI Accounts Settings page showing a “Native” NCBI account without any linked accounts.

What about my account data?

This change will not affect the actual data in your account, such as your MyBibliography, SciENcv, or submission data. The only thing that is changing are the credentials you use to access your account.

What if I have questions?

We’re here to help! You can always write to for more information, particularly if you would be interested in helping us with this transition by being willing to migrate your credentials early. Your willingness will help us make the transition easier for everyone!

Featured JAMA Article: Covid-19 Conspiracies and Beyond: How Physicians Can Deal with Patients' Misinformation


COVID-19 Conspiracies and Beyond: How Physicians Can Deal With Patients' Misinformation.

Abbasi J.JAMA. 2020 Dec 30. doi: 10.1001/jama.2020.22018. Online ahead of print.
PMID: 33377900     Link to article.

JAMA Medical News Associate Managing Editor Jennifer Abbasi talks to communication science expert Brian Southwell, PhD

Early in 2020, communication science expert Brian Southwell, PhD, launched a training workshop at the Duke University School of Medicine to address a major clinical problem: What physicians should do when patients are misinformed about their health. It’s one of only a few such programs in the nation. This year, Southwell, a scholar with the medical school’s Social Science Research Institute, and his collaborator Jamie Wood, PhD, plan to make it available as a live virtual offering for clinician practices and health care systems.

“There’s a lot that we can learn from the past in terms of how people have engaged with misinformation historically,” Southwell said in a recent interview with JAMA. “That’s going to be helpful, but we also need to think about some of the challenges of the moment.” Misinformation is a longstanding issue, he acknowledged, but one that social media has facilitated and exacerbated—sometimes with dangerous consequences. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic brought it all to a head.
In the edited conversation that follows, Southwell, who is also a senior director at the independent, nonprofit research institute RTI International, discussed the viral spread of false health information and malicious disinformation campaigns, why we’re vulnerable to falling for them, and how time-pressed physicians can deal with all the noise.

Playdough Surgery - Cesarean Delivery

For your viewing pleasure and amusement over the holidays:

This surgeon mom has been improving her kids' fine motor skills using some extremely detailed Playdough models.    

See the complete playlist for other episodes and surgical procedures by Breakfasteur.

Even if you are not a surgeon, or don't work in surgery, this is an entertaining, fascinating if simplified view of some surgical procedures.    Makes me wonder if this kid will become a brilliant surgeon, or want nothing to do with it when they grow up?
