Your Grant Is Scheduled for an Appendectomy
Starting with grants due January 25, 2017, the NIH will no longer allow most materials you might want to put in your appendix. No longer can information required for the peer review process hide in the back. And per the policy announcement, “Information that expands upon or complements information provided in any section of the application — even if it is not required for the review — is not allowed in the appendix” unless it’s one of a very few things like blank surveys or informed consent forms. (The policy announcement includes the whole list.)
If you submit extra stuff in your grant, the whole thing comes back to you unread.
Prep for surgery, February submitters. This appendix is coming out.
