The ReSource for news and information on RePORT enhancements https://report.nih.gov

Welcome to the first edition of the ReSource Newsletter, the primary source for news and information regarding the Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (RePORT) website. RePORT provides access to reports, data, and analyses of NIH research activities, including information on NIH expenditures and the results of NIH-supported research. RePORT is ever-expanding with new reports, tools, and concepts for displaying data. Look to the ReSource for the latest
developments and handy tips and tricks for using the site and its tools.

To receive periodic updates of new RePORT features, tools, or reports, please join the new listserv by clicking here: NIH-REPORT-PUBLIC-L.
Want Quick and Easy Access to NIH Reports? Want Quick and Easy Access to NIH Reports?
Look no further than the Reports Search page on the RePORT site. The Reports page provides access to a searchable database of hundreds of reports. Research funding reports have been tagged using a common classification scheme based on the traditional NIH budget categories. Each report has been categorized and can be searched by topic, IC, the portfolio being reported on, the budget mechanisms and activities through which the programs included in the report are funded, and the years covered by the report. The reports in the database take many forms; they may be spreadsheets, papers (e.g., MS Word or pdf), presentations, or simply links to other NIH websites. Some ICs have already added reports and links to their ICs' websites. If you would like to make information on your IC's programs more accessible through RePORT by contributing to the database, please contact RePORT@od.nih.gov.
Awards by Location and Organization Awards by Location and Organization
A new feature, NIH Awards by Location and Organization, accessible from the RePORT Funded Organizations page, consolidates all information about NIH-supported extramural organizations in a single tool. Users may perform searches filtering by fiscal year, Institute or Center, state or foreign location, and organization type and name. After you perform a search you can generate a geo-coded map of awards. Award records are directly linked to the RePORTER system so you can easily access additional information regarding specific projects. All of the data are available for download into Excel spreadsheets. Awards by Location and Organization combines and will eventually replace the other three web pages on the Funded Organizations site. Please note that this feature is in beta and will be undergoing continual updates. If you have any suggestions for new features, please contact RePORT@od.nih.gov.
RePORT Expenditures and Results Tool Enhancements RePORT Expenditures and Results Tool Enhancements

The RePORT Expenditures and Results (RePORTER) system is an electronic tool that allows users to search a repository of both intramural and extramural NIH-funded research projects from the past 25 years and access publications and patents citing this support. In addition to NIH-funded research, the system provides access to research supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

New Feature Highlights

Need Historical Information on NIH Funding? Total Costs of NIH Grant Awards Extended to FY 2000
Award amounts for NIH grants awarded in FY 2000 and later fiscal years are now available in RePORTER. This is a change from previously only showing dollar amounts for projects dating back to FY2008.
Project Results Hit Lists Now Available
As experienced RePORTER users know, the project Results tab provides access to abstracts of publications and patents citing support from a particular NIH-funded project. Now, complete lists of all publications and patents citing support from one or more projects in a hit list are now generated when a search is executed in RePORTER. Just as the projects are listed on the "Hit List" tab, the publications and patents are listed on their own hit list tabs. Users can export these lists to Excel. Exported spreadsheets will maintain hyperlinks from the publication and patent titles to PubMed abstracts and the US Patent and Trademark Office patent database.
New Query Options
You can now search for up to 100 projects at a single time by uploading a list of project numbers to the RePORTER query page. Click on the "Enter multiple project numbers" link (under the Project Number query field) and enter the project numbers (separated by commas). Other recently-added search options include foreign country, type of educational institution and medical school department (using standard NIH categorizations), and awardee DUNS number.
PI Profile Links
NIH-funded Principal Investigators (PIs) now have the ability to add links to “profile pages” (e.g., their institutional faculty page or laboratory website). Wherever a PI’s name appears in RePORTER, it is hyperlinked to a list of websites submitted by the PI. The hyperlink also provides instructions for PIs to add new sites to their list. On each projects Details page, users will see either an orange icon Orange Icon indicating that no profile yet exists or a blue icon Blue Icon indicating the availability of one or more PI profile links. Clicking on either the PI name or an icon will bring up a list of any existing profile links and allow PIs to enter new ones. To confirm the PI’s identity, an email is sent to the PI email address shown on the project Details page with instructions to confirm the profile link before it’s made available in RePORTER.
Links to clinicaltrials.gov
Where available in clinicaltrials.gov, NIH grant numbers have been linked to RePORTER records. RePORTER project hit lists now include a “Clinical Trials” tab showing any clinical trials linked to the projects. The list of clinical trials shows the status of each trial (recruiting, active but not recruiting, completed, or terminated) and a link to a description of the trial on clinicaltrials.gov. It is important to note that we currently don’t have the ability to associate clinicaltrials.gov records with specific subprojects of multi-project grants. For these types of awards, a clinical trial is associated with the parent project and all its subprojects. As a result, for large multi-project grants that support research in a broad range of topics, this will lead to a hit list of clinical trials covering a diverse set of conditions or diseases that may be unrelated to an area of research specified in the original project search criteria.
Links to NIH Intramural Database annual reports
Intramural projects in RePORTER are now linked to their corresponding annual reports published in the NIH Intramural Database (NIDB). The NIDB Annual Report button NIDB Annual Report can be found on the Project Description page of intramural projects.

The One-Stop-Shop For All You Need To Know About NIH and ARRA Funding The One-Stop-Shop For All You Need To Know About NIH & ARRA Funding
The RePORT Recovery Act page provides access to both data on NIH American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding and descriptions of the research being conducted with this support. Tools are provided to search ARRA-funded research by a variety of criteria including Funding Opportunity Announcement, state, congressional district, topic, funding mechanism, and Institute or Center. Mapping tools are provided that include hyperlinks to project descriptions in RePORTER and all data can be downloaded into spreadsheets. In-depth highlights of funded research are also provided in the NIH Recovery Act Investment Reports. For comments and questions on the Investment Reports, please contact the NIH Office of Science Policy and Analysis at scanleya@od.nih.gov.
The Biennial Report of the NIH Director, 2008-2009 The Biennial Report of the NIH Director, 2008-2009
The new FY 2008-2009 version of the NIH Biennial Report is now available on the RePORT site. The report provides an assessment of the state of biomedical and behavioral research, a portrait of NIH research activities (integrated across all 27 Institutes and Centers), some key research approaches and resources used in NIH research, and a review of those NIH Centers of Excellence that have been established by statutory mandate. In addition to capturing a remarkable array of important NIH research activities, the online version of the Report provides hyperlinks to related NIH and IC websites, publications, supporting data and reports, and published research articles. The previous 2006-2007 Biennial Report will remain available on RePORT. Both reports can be exported to PDF.
