An ongoing two-year initiative has focused new attention on the need to better address rigor and reproducibility in research. This heightened awareness of problems identified in the quality (rigor) with which some published studies have been completed as well as the lack of transparency in reporting the details of completed studies led to extensive discussion in the broad research community of measures to ensure the reproducibility of important study findings and ultimately the validity of the findings. This session focuses on new proposal requirements on the part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to address key features of rigorous, unbiased research in research grant applications submitted on or after January 25, 2016. In addition, the speaker will outline key revisions to two of five of individual scored review criteria as well as Additional Considerations for Review impacted by these changes and share insights on available resources that are emerging to address these requirements.
