Below is a collection of tutorials, templates, and "best practices'' guidelines to aid in the conduct of research rigor and reproducibility (R&R). They reflect R&R core competencies and emphasize compliance with requirements outlined by major institutes and foundations.
This list of resources is also intended to serve as a library from which your research team may select appropriate tools to structure and manage aspects of R&R relevant to your own research.
We are currently in the process of redisinging the website and adding additional resources.
NIH Rigor and Reproducibility Training Modules
Developed by the NIH, these training modules, which include videos and accompanying discussion materials, focus on integral aspects of research rigor and reproducibility, such as bias, blinding and exclusion criteria. The modules are not comprehensive but rather provide an overview and a way to stimulate conversations.
NIH Rigor and Reproducibility Frequently Asked Questions
The NIH and its individual Institutes/Centers have developed R&R Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers) in response to inquiries on policies and programs affecting the grants process. We encourage that you bookmark this page for future reference and watch for updates.
Reviewer Guidance on Rigor and Transparency
The goal of this initiative is to enhance reproducibility of research through rigor and transparency. Grant applicants will need to describe plans to address any weaknesses in the rigor of prior research within the Research Strategy and reviewers will assess this plan. Implementation of rigor and transparency for individual fellowship, institutional career development, and institutional training grant applications will be announced in advance, on a different timeline that allows for training in rigor and transparency to be developed.
