The Contributions to Science Section offers investigators the option to include a URL to a full list of published work. NIH recommends that investigators use "My Bibliography" as NIH can assure reviewers that their anonymity will be protected if they review publications at that site. A URL for a publication list is optional and, if provided, must be to a government website (.gov) such as My Bibliography.


  • Use the My Bibliography “Sharing feature to obtain a URL. 
  • Click the “Make it Public” link.
  • A URL will appear.
  • Copy and paste the entire URL string to the template.
  • Private/Public settings are flexible.


  • Check the box below the Contributions to Science section. 

 Include link to complete list of published work in My Bibliography.
(Selecting this option will make the list public.)


  • Spell the URL in full, beginning with "http://."

  • Do not embed the link as hyperlinked text. The link will not remain active after processing.

  • The URL to a full list of published work is not required.

  • Only one URL is allowed in the Biosketch. Any URLs other than the List of Published Works to a government website will not be allowed.
