National Science Foundation (NSF)
Proposal Submission
For proposals due on or after January 14, are
summarized below:
• Project summary - must now be provided in three
separate text boxes - one for project overview and one
each for statements on the intellectual merit and the
broader impacts of the project.
• Biosketch - this section has been changed to enable the
submission of products instead of publications. The
intent is to reflect the changing nature of scientific work,
and allow for listing of patents, data sets, software, and
copyrights, to name a few, in addition to publications.

Proposal Submission
• The facilities, equipment and other resources section
must include a full description of internal and external,
physical and personnel, resources available to the
project. A new format for this section is available in
Fastlane.
• Regarding budget preparation, if no person months and
no salary are being requested for senior personnel they
should not be included on the budget pages (Section A
on the budget form). The names will remain on the cover
sheet with the roles described in the facilities, equipment
and other resources section.

Implications of a Successful NIH Public Access Policy
Easy access to published research funded by NIH will help advance
science and improve human health.
– Meets the public’s expectation that articles based on NIH-funded
research are publicly available1.
– NIH can monitor, mine, and develop its portfolio of taxpayer funded
research more effectively.
– NIH-funded research becomes more prominent, integrated and
accessible, making it easier for all scientists to pursue NIH’s research
priority areas competitively.

NIH Enforcement of Public Access Policy
NIH PUBLIC POLICY ACCESS POLICY
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that it will begin a more
rigorous enforcement of its public access policy in Spring 2013.
NIH will delay processing of noncompeting continuation awards if the
investigator(s)’ publications arising from that award are not in compliance
with the access policy.
The award will not be processed until the investigator(s) are in compliance.
The enforcement will be implemented as a part of the required use of the
Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) form for all Streamlined NonCompeting Award Process (SNAP) and fellowship awards, expected in Spring
2013.

My NCBI
The Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) requires reporting publications;
Investigators can use their eRA Commons My Bibliography link to access My NCBI
(National Center for Biotechnology Information) information including publications
linked by other co-investigators to the award;
All grantees submitting paper PHS 2590 progress reports will be required to provide a
My NCBI generated PDF report of publications as Section 2.2.6, Section E.
Publications, of the progress report. These PDF reports will be required when the
RPPR is required for all Streamlined Non-Competing Award Process (SNAP) and
Fellowship awards. Grantees are encouraged to begin using the PDF report
immediately on a voluntary basis;
The RPPR will be pre-populated with publications and the investigator(s) select the
related publications. In the event an investigator submits a RPPR with non-compliant
publications, an email notification will be sent to the investigator requesting a response
by a specified due date two weeks prior to the next budget start date.

My NCBI
Facilitates grantee reporting in two ways;
•quickly provides the public access compliance status of each publication
arising from the award in an easy to understand format;
•ensures grant-paper associations reported on the PHS 2590 are captured in
RePORTER and other NIH electronic systems.
Instructions for the PDF report are available at
