Important Changes to the NIH Public Access Policy, Spring 2013
Since 2008 the NIH Public Access Policy has required NIH funded authors to show evidence of compliance with the policy by using a PMCID, NIHMSID or exemption statement for citations in NIH applications and progress reports. NIH has announced that starting in spring 2013, they will hold the processing of non-competing continuation awards if publications arising from grant awards are not in compliance with the policy. It will be critical that all citations in your upcoming progress reports show evidence of compliance with the policy in order to ensure timely continued funding. If you need assistance in reviewing citations for compliance, submitting manuscripts to the NIH Manuscript Submission System, want to schedule departmental training sessions, or just have questions about the policy, please contact Julie Schneider or Trisha Adamus.
NIH Announces Plans to Transition to Electronic Submission of Multi-Project Applications
NIH plans to transition all multi-project applications to electronic submission using the SF 424 (R&R) form set by January 2014. The transition will be done by activity code, in the same way NIH has completed previous electronic application transitions. As each activity code transitions, all applications submitted in response to funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) for programs with that activity code will require electronic submission. The pilot will include FOAs representing a variety of activity codes, however.
Organizations that use system-to-system solutions to transmit applications via data stream to Grants.gov rather than using the Grants.gov forms will be able to send multi-project applications through Grants.gov using the same interfaces they do now. NIH and Grants.gov have made technical information on multi-project applications available for systems developers so they can plan for any system adjustments they need to make to accommodate these applications.
Initial plans/milestones are as follows:
- September 25, 2013 — All applications submitted in response to FOAs with the following activity codes intended for September 25, 2013 due dates and beyond will require electronic submission: P01, P20, P50, R24, U24, U19.
- January 25, 2014 — All applications submitted in response to FOAs with the following activity codes intended for
- January 25, 2014 due dates and beyond will require electronic submission: G12, P30, P40, P41, P42, P51, P60, R28, U10, U41, U42, U45, U54, U56, UC7, UM1.
NIH will continue to communicate transition plans as they evolve and will provide the community with ample notice of impending events.
Please note application deadline listed is for new submissions. Renewals, resubmissions and revisions for R01, R03, R21, R33, K series, and U01 are due a month later. Please review the NIH standard receipt dates.
