NIH To Relax ‘Two Strikes’ Grant Submission Policy

After being flooded with complaints, NIH will lift its ban on resubmitting rejected proposals.

The NIH is dropping a policy that gave researchers only one chance to revise a rejected grant application before having to start over with a new idea—a rule that was especially hard on young investigators.

ORE hosts 2-day North American Archaelogy workshop

On March 19 and 20, the Office of Research & Engagement (ORE) hosted a two-day workshop, partially funded by NSF, for the Digital Index of North American Archaeology (DINAA).  Attending were approximately 35 archaeologists from across the US from various universities, US Department of the Interior, the Florida Department of State, TVA, Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist, and other agencies. 

Robert Nobles, ORE assistant vice chancellor for the responsible conduct of research and research integrity officer, gave the opening comments and welcome to the workshop.

The DINAA workshop was, in part, an effort to bring together all archaeological research across the US.  The states are currently required to maintain this information but there is little to no communication among the states.
