MyNCBI saves searches and results from multiple NCBI databases, including PubMed. MyNCBI users can save their citations with the "My Bibliography" feature and can manage peer review article compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy. MyNCBI includes additional features for filtering search results, highlighting search terms, and setting preferences.
