Since it has been on my "list of things to do", I thought I would share
what I have so far on the NIH requirements & citation management
programs.  Some of it is redundant.  It looks like RefWorks & Endnote
are the 2 programs paying any attention to this at this time.



As previously stated, Wisconsin got a jump on the RefWorks thing and has
posted what to do.  Basically, the PMCID # is in the notes field when
available, and the instructions provide the steps to put in it a custom
field - see 


EndNote, at first had a similar solution, but has since automated the
process of putting the PMCID # in custom field 2 - see their FAQ at , but you still
need to set up the custom field.  Also, the EndNote rep @ MLA said that
version X2 will give it (PMCID) its own field, but I have no literature
on that.


EndNote Web is not currently doing anything with the PMCID # and it is
not imported currently.  With a quick perusal of their site, I could
find no info about their plans (or not) to modify anything.  It is
updated quarterly, so don't look for anything anytime soon.


A quick check of Reference Manger found no FAQs about the NIH
requirements and the program does not import that piece of information
in any field (e.g., notes field).


Bookends - a Mac program - likewise had no info on their program and the
NIH requirements.


Hope that helps.
