A new notice from the NIH (Reporting Preprints and Other Interim Research Products, NOT-OD-17-050) indicates that interim research products, including preprints, can soon be cited where other research products are cited. This includes the NIH Biosketch and Section C of the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), among others. The change is effective for all applications submitted for the May 25, 2017 due date and beyond, and for RPPRs submitted on or after May 25, 2017. The NIH encourages investigators to use interim research products but does not require their use. Preprints do not apply under the NIH Public Access Policy. This guide notice does not apply to clinical trial registration. See ClinicalTrials.gov about registration of clinical trial protocols.
Advice for New Investigators Using the New NIH Biosketch
A new NIH biosketch format is required for all NIH and AHRQ applications as of May 25, 2015. NIH and AHRQ will require use of the new biosketch format in applications for research grants submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015.
