Return of the A2 revision for NIH Grants?
October 16, 2012
According to a blog entry at Nature the NIH is reconsidering their policy limiting applicants to a single revision of an unfunded grant proposal.
Good. They should do so. Unless, as I’ve said repeatedly, they can show that the increase in the percentage of grants funded on the first try is driven by genuine “first” tries. Rather than being driven by ideas which have been previously reviewed, in different guise.
