I wrote what???

After you submit a grant, how many days before you can bear to look at it?

  1. I always admire my outstanding grants as soon as they are up on Commons.

    What about all your shitty ones PP?


  3. GMP Says:

    I don’t read them in their entirety for weeks, sometimes a month or two, after submission…


  4. Dude, *all* my grants are outstanding!


  5. DrugMonkey Says:

    So I take it any little misunderstandings with study sections are due to incompetent review and factual errors?


  6. Neuro-conservative Says:

    1 month. Never less.


  7. Fred Says:

    Read once after hitting submit, then not until I have comments from the reviewers.


  8. Namnezia Says:

    Not until comments come back, or I need to reformat it for other purposes.


  9. You got it, holmes!


  10. antipodean Says:

  12. Pinko Punko Says:

    Ugh. Not until the decision. If sooner, not for at least two months.

    Only when I get comments back and it’s not funded.

    Which means never. 🙂

    I submitted something last week that had been worked on by at least five people over the course of the previous month. I reviewed in in Commons and only then discovered that two different figures were labeled as Figure X. I withdrew it, corrected it, resubmitted it, then castigated all of the co-investigators for not spotting such a glaring faux pas in the first place. Idiots!


  16. If you are the contact PI, then you are the idiot for submitting something with a mistake like that.


  17. Dr. O Says:

    After I get back the comments, or need to take it apart for another grant/manuscript.
