… about the future of your research.
Still adrift on the ocean of public access? Dr. Akers in the Shiffman Library recently put together a clarifying resource! Check it out on their site, and take a look at her data sharing policies for researchers too (hint: this is especially important if your research involves any genomic data!). Remember: access to your data is a very important part of your funding obligations, so make sure you understand your responsibilities. Questions? We’re here to help, and so is Dr. Akers!
Welcome back, SOM! As we begin 2015, many of the federal administrative changes that you’ve been reading about are now officially in effect. You’ve heard and seen (ad nauseam) that the OMB Uniform Guidance is officially official as of December 26, 2014; but there other impending changes that you should note as well:
- December 4, 2014: Modification to identification of marked changes in resubmissions in effect [NOT-OD-15-030]
- January 11, 2015: The NIH salary cap is increased to $183,300 [Salary Cap Summary]
- January 25, 2015: New late submission policy is in effect [NOT-OD-15-039]
- January 25. 2015: Implementation of the new genomic data sharing policy begins [NOT-OD-15-027]
- End of January 2015 target: ASSIST will be an option for R03s and R21s [NOT-OD-15-044]
- On or after May 25, 2015: New biosketch formats will be required (though they are encouraged now; this was changed from the original January 25 deadline) [NOT-OD-15-032]
