Funding: Informationist Services
NLM is again funding efforts that add an informationist component to NIH funded research projects.
These administrative supplements provide funds to supported research and center grants in order to enhance the storage, organization, management and use of electronic research data through the involvement of informationists, also known as in-context information specialists.
The purposes of this administrative supplement program are (1) to enhance collaborative, multi-disciplinary basic and clinical research by integrating an information specialist into the research team in order to improve the capture, storage, organization, management, integration, presentation and dissemination of biomedical research data; and (2) to assess and document the value and impact of the informationist’s participation.
The Administrative Supplement opportunity is available to eligible NIH awardees with active R01 grants and, in some cases, with active P01, P20, P30, P50, R21, R21/R33, R24, R34, U01, U19, U24, U54 and UM1 grants (see details above in the Activity Code Section).
Application Due Date: November 5, 2013 by 5 PM local time of applicant organization.
