Letter from Dr. Stephen I. Katz: Communicating Research Progress and Impact
Date: May 25, 2017
In Dr. Katz’s May letter, he reviews the NIH’s new guidance regarding the use of preprints, which are manuscripts before they have been peer-reviewed, edited or published. The notice clarified reporting instructions for preprints — and other interim research products — to allow investigators to cite and claim them as products of NIH funding. Dr. Katz also reminds grantees that press releases, videos, publications, interviews with reporters, and other communications must mention NIH support. Dr. Katz’s provides several examples of this which you can read in his full letter, here.
