NIH Preprint Pilot Expands to Phase 2!
Posted On: Thursday, May 25, 2023 - 10:10 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
Back in 2020, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) launched the NIH Preprint Pilot to test the feasibility of making NIH-funded preprints discoverable in PubMed Central (PMC) and by extension, PubMed. Preprints are complete, public drafts of articles that have not yet been peer reviewed. Phase 1 sought to answer the NLM's question: do preprints in PMC accelerate the discoverability and maximize the impact of NIH-supported research? This first phase of the pilot focused on archiving preprints reporting SARS-CoV-2 virus/COVID-19 research and resulted in more than 3,500 preprints added to NLM database, accelerating access to NIH-supported research results by an average of…MORE

FDP Data Management & Sharing Pilot
Posted On: Tuesday, April 25, 2023 - 15:53 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
It has been several months since NIH’s new Data Management and Sharing Policy went into effect. As a brief reminder, the new policy requires that investigators who are applying to NIH for funding submit a Data Management & Sharing (DMS) plan if their grant will produce scientific data. The DMS plan will describe the type and format of data that will be collected or produced and how it will be shared and preserved.
Researchers at Duke have an opportunity to participate in a pilot for NIH DMS Plan templates and…MORE

The New NIH Data Policy is Here!
Posted On: Sunday, January 22, 2023 - 11:13 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
The new NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy went into effect on January 25, 2023! This means that if you are submitting a NIH grant application that will produce scientific data, you now need to include a 1-2 page data management plan that describes the type and format of data you plan to collect or produce and how you will share and preserve it. At the time of the grant application, you will now need to plan for how you are going to manage and share your data. To support you with this process, we have provided a list helpful resources.

Need to Write a DMS Plan? Use DMPTool!
Posted On: Sunday, January 22, 2023 - 08:41 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
If your research will be NIH-funded, you will need to include a data management and sharing (DMS) plan with your grant application as of January 25, 2023. You can use the NIH optional DMS Plan format page to create your plan, but why not take advantage of the free, online DMPTool managed by the California Digital Library? DMPTool provides a click-through wizard that walks you through the DMP creation process using an NIH template along with helpful guidance from both NIH and Duke.
There are several reasons why Duke researchers should use the DMPTool:
- Duke authentication through Shibboleth (choose Duke, login with NetID and password)

NIH Data Management & Sharing Policy Update
Posted On: Tuesday, September 27, 2022 - 16:34 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
Is your research funded by NIH? Does your research generate scientific data? If you answered yes to both of these questions, you will need to submit a Data Management & Sharing Plan with your grant applications with receipt dates on/after January 25, 2023. Here are the latest updates relevant to the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy:
- This policy applies to new applications for receipt dates ON/AFTER January 25, 2023 (see Data Management & Sharing Overview).
- Implementation changes for genomic data…

NIH Public Access Policy Compliance Revisited
Posted On: Monday, July 18, 2022 - 10:27 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
Did you know that your peer-reviewed publications from NIH-funded grants must be deposited into PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication and made available to the public in PMC within 12 months of publication? This is the requirement of the NIH Public Access Policy, which mandates that the public has access to published results of your NIH-funded research.
Here are some tips for ensuring that you are in compliance!
- As soon as your manuscript is published, ensure that it is submitted to PubMed Central. There are many options to do this, and it usually depends on the journal where your work is published. Sometimes the journal will do it for…

New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy!
Posted On: Friday, February 25, 2022 - 16:38 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
In October of 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy. Beginning in January 2023, this policy will require that all NIH researchers prospectively plan for how their scientific data and accompanying metadata will be preserved and shared by submitting a Data Management and Sharing Plan in their grant applications. This new plan goes into effect on January 25, 2023 replacing the current Data Management and Sharing Policy from 2003. The new policy continues NIH's commitment to making sure that the results and outputs of NIH funded…MORE

NIH Biosketches: Use SciENcv!
Posted On: Saturday, January 1, 2022 - 10:32 by Beverly Murphy
Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is a system for creating and updating your NIH biosketch with the new format or NSF biosketch (required as of May 25, 2015).
Duke is strongly encouraging the use of this system since it will save you time now and in the future due to its automated features.
• Pulls in profile information if you already have a profile in eRA Commons
• Uploads your publications from My NCBI’s My Bibliography or through an ORCID account
• Allows you to create several different versions of your profile by reusing information previously entered
Why create more than…
NIH Preprints for Early Access to COVID-19 Research
Posted On: Friday, June 19, 2020 - 18:15 by Karen Barton
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has launched a pilot project to test the viability of making preprints resulting from NIH-funded research available via PubMed Central (PMC). It is very important to note that these preprints will NOT be peer-reviewed. Therefore, when you search PubMed Central or PubMed (which also retrieves PubMed Central articles), you may see preprints in your search results that will display the banner shown to the right below.
The pilot project will run for a minimum of 12 months and will initially focus on increasing the discoverability of preprints relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Once curation and ingest workflows become scalable, NLM hopes to expand the pilot to include the full spectrum of NIH…MORE

Office Hours to Assist with Human Subject Research Proposals
Posted On: Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 14:44 by Beverly Murphy
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has broadened its definition of clinical trial and is instituting the use of a new forms packet for collecting information about human subjects research at the time of proposal submission. These changes are substantial and will impact applications (new, resubmission, or revision) and awards with submission dates after January 25, 2018.
In an effort to answer questions related to these changes, several offices at Duke are coming together to offer office hours at the Medical Center Library & Archives (see schedule below). These are open to any faculty and staff with questions about proposal preparation or submission. General questions about these changes or office hours can be directed to …MORE

Who's Responsible for Public Access Policy Compliance?
Posted On: Monday, September 19, 2016 - 10:11 by Patricia Thibodeau
The bottom line is that the PI is responsible even if not an author on the article. Any author or PI can submit the manuscript file(s) and approve the submission, but unless the submission and final version are approved, the publication becomes non-compliant within 30 days of publication. That can be a problem when renewing or seeking funding.
AUTHORS! You can help the PIs by letting them know when a manuscript attributed to their grant has been submitted for publication.
How do I track publications?
