CCAS Research Updates: June 4, 2018

 Limited Proposal Opportunities (for Humanities Faculty)

NEH Summer Stipends program (internal deadline July 2, 2018)

Once again, we are pleased to inform you an opportunity to compete for a submission to the NEH Summer Stipends program for support in Summer 2019. This NEH program supports individual researchers for scholarly work that is of value to humanities scholars and general audiences. Funded products include articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, and other scholarly resources. You could receive support for continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months.
NEH Summer Stipends are awarded only to individual scholars who are nominated by the institution at which they are teaching full-time. We are limited to two nominees. We will select these two nominations based on your "pre-proposal" submitted internally to ccasres@gwu.edu by Monday, July 2, 2018. Each internal pre-proposal should consist of a project narrative (1 page) and a CV (no more than 2 pages).  An internal evaluation committee will be formed to evaluate those internal submissions. We will inform our decisions to the applicants by Monday, July 16, 2018. After that, the two selected applicants will submit their applications to NEH by the deadline of September 26, 2018. We will try to provide some mentoring for our selected applicants as in the past.
Further information about the NEH Summer Stipends program and the application process can be found in the email below and at https://www.neh.gov/grants/research/summer-stipends. You are also welcome to contact us at ccasres@gwu.edu with any questions you may have about the process at GW for making our nominations.

Integrated Research Information Software (iRIS)

As indicated in the OVPR Research Update on May 8, 2018, OVPR has led a process to identify and acquire an electronic system with the goal of streamlining research compliance operations. The Integrated ResearchInformation Software (iRIS) will automate processes that currently require printed forms, manage workflows, and allow investigators to track the status of their applications and training requirements. The web-based modules will support human subjects research, animal research, research with biological agents, and conflict of interest disclosure and management. For more information about the software and target launch dates, please visit the GW iRIS project website. The project website will be updated with important news andupdates.

Here is the latest on accessing / form submissions / orientation:

The human subjects module of GW iRIS, the university’s new electronic compliance system, is now open for submissions. All applications (including applications associated with current or pending studies) must be submitted via GW iRIS. The Office of Human Research (OHR) is no longer accepting paper forms or email submissions.

Logging into GW iRIS
GW faculty/staff/students can log into GW iRIS by visiting https://gwu-iris.imedris.net and entering their NetID and password.
All other users should consult the Reference Guide: Logging In for the First Time (PDF) that is located on the GW iRIS tool website.

Submitting Forms
Instructions for submitting forms via GW iRIS have been updated on the OHR website. Please see the Forms & Tools section for more details.
