The ReSource Newsletter provides information on recent reports of NIH-funded activities and it is the primary source of news and information on the Research Portfolio and 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.
Rock Talk: Women in Research Careers Rock Talk: Women in Research Careers

In a recent post on her Rock Talk blog, Dr. Sally Rockey, NIH Deputy Director for Extramural Research, describes a report prepared by the NIH Office of Extramural Research in collaboration with the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health. Readers can access the blog for more detail but, to summarize, Dr. Rockey concludes with “Overall, the authors showed that women have comparable success and funding rates to men for most award programs. And, women awardees, on average, received at least as much as men in direct costs requested per application. However, there remain areas that I think could benefit from improvement, including retaining more women in biomedical research as they climb the career ladder. Continuing to look critically at trends in funding will be important as we move forward.”

Web Portal has been launched!

The new NIH ARRA Web Portal integrates content from the original NIH Recovery site with key data elements from the RePORT website, including ARRA Investment Reports and Funding Maps. The site features multifaceted funding maps with geocoded ARRA Investment Reports and Stories. It will also feature ARRA Results Reports in the near future.

The NIH ARRA Web Portal was developed by the NIH Office of Science Policy and Analysis, in collaboration with the Office of Extramural Research. It builds on the original NIH Recovery website developed by the NIH Office of Communication and Public Liaison and communications offices of the NIH Institutes and Centers.

RePORT Expenditures and Results Enhancements RePORT Expenditures and Results Enhancements

Introducing the new “Links” tab!

After selecting a project from the RePORTER Search Results page, users will now see a “Links” tab on the Project Information page. The Links tab provides links to external (i.e., non-NIH) websites that provide additional information about NIH-funded research and the investigators we support. Currently, users can link to project information on NIHMaps.org and any profile pages the PI has entered using the RePORTER PI Profile Link feature. NIHMaps.org provides a database and web-based interface for searching and discovering the types of research awarded by the NIH and the relationships among NIH grants awarded in fiscal years 2007-2010. You can use the site to view a list of grants similar to the one selected from the RePORTER hit list or view the location of the selected grant in a “topic map” of all NIH grants funded in the same fiscal year. The topic map displays thematically-related grants in clusters based on words contained in the title and abstract of each grant.

MyRePORTER Alerts Feature Now Available MyRePORTER Alerts Feature Now Available

MyRePORTER users now have the ability to subscribe to receive weekly alerts of new projects added to the RePORTER database that match their saved queries in MyRePORTER. Subscribing to receive alerts is easy. To receive alerts, simply log in to your MyRePORTER account and on the Saved Queries Dashboard you will notice a new ‘Alerts’ column. Check the boxes in this column associated with the saved queries for which you would like to receive alerts and you will be enrolled to receive a weekly email alerting you to new projects added to RePORTER that match your saved search queries. Lists of up to 25 projects per saved query will be included in the email along with links to the projects’ details and description in RePORTER. If the number of new projects exceeds 25, there will also be a link to a complete RePORTER hit list of all of the projects. (If you are new to MyRePORTER, see how to register in the RePORTER Manual.)

A related feature has been added to the RePORTER Query Form. A check box has been added to the bottom of the Query Form that will limit search results to only those projects added to RePORTER since the last data refresh.

RePORTER PI Profile Links RePORTER PI Profile Links

Do you want to:

  • Bring visibility to your projects?
  • Allow fellow PIs and other members of the public to learn more about your research?
  • Connect and Collaborate with other PIs?
Consider Using the PI Profile Links feature in RePORTER! By adding profile links to your PI Profile List in RePORTER, you can bring attention to your research as well as make connections with other PIs interested in similar research. Allow others to learn more about your research by providing links to a project website, bibliography, your biosketch, favorite profiling systems (e.g., VIVO, Community of Science ProfileTM, ResearchCrossroads, BiomedExperts), or your faculty or department Web page. Instructions for adding a profile link can be found in Chapter 7 of the RePORTER manual at https://projectreporter.nih.gov/report_manual.cfm#7.

Download the RePORTER Database with ExPORTER Download the RePORTER Database with ExPORTER
The ExPORTER site makes downloadable versions of all of the data accessed through the RePORTER interface available to the public. This site is a key component of NIH "open government" initiatives to provide more transparency in NIH activities, improve the quality of the data we collect, and increase its utility. The data files underlying RePORTER include information on projects funded by NIH and other agencies of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In addition to detailed information on each project, files are available with information on publications and patents that have acknowledged support from these projects. ExPORTER also provides access to data exported from the NIH CRISP system, a predecessor to RePORTER. We invite you to take advantage of these data to conduct your own detailed analysis of the research projects found in RePORTER. You can voluntarily sign-up to receive emails regarding updates to the ExPORTER site on the ExPORTER home page.
