Effective immediately, the NIH and AHRQ will accept a new (A0) application following an unsuccessful resubmission (A1) application. The subsequent new application need not demonstrate substantial changes in scientific direction compared to previously reviewed submissions, and must not contain an introduction to respond to the critiques from the previous review.
NIH’s policy for accepting overlapping applications remains in effect (see NOT-OD-09-100). The NIH will not accept duplicate or highly overlapping applications under review at the same time. This means that the NIH will not accept:
- a new (A0) application that is submitted before issuance of the summary statement from the review of an overlapping resubmission (A1) application.
- a resubmission (A1) application that is submitted before issuance of the summary statement from the review of the previous new (A0) application.
- an application that has substantial overlap with another application pending appeal of initial peer review (see NOT-OD-11-101).
The NIH time limit for accepting resubmission (A1) applications remains in effect (see NOT-OD-12-128 and NOT-OD-10-140). The NIH will not accept a resubmission (A1) application that is submitted later than 37 months after submission of the new (A0) application that it follows.
The NIH policy for New Investigator R01 resubmission deadlines, described in Guide Notice NOT-OD-11-057, remains in effect. A New Investigator whose new (A0) R01 application was reviewed in the Center for Scientific Review or the National Institute of Mental Health, and was unsuccessful, may submit a resubmission (A1) R01 application by the next New Investigator resubmission due date (April 10, August 10, or December 10). New Investigators who wish to submit a new (A0) R01 application following an unsuccessful resubmission application must use the standard due dates, regardless of the previous submission history for that project, unless they are eligible for Continuous Submission (see NOT-OD-14-028).
