Announcement: The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently incorporated system enhancements to the Project Reports module in Research.gov to enable the auto-population of dataset metadata submitted to the NSF Public Access Repository (NSF-PAR) into NSF in-progress (i.e., unsubmitted) project reports. Dataset metadata auto-population helps to reduce administrative burden for Principal Investigators and improves project report data quality. There are no changes to NSF’s Public Access policy or project reporting requirements.
Please see the How to Add Datasets to the NSF-PAR and NSF In-progress Project Reports guide and the How to Remove Datasets from the NSF-PAR and In-progress Project Reports guide on the Research.gov About Public Access page for additional details. Information about the NSF Public Access Initiative is also available.
Questions? If you have IT system-related questions about these enhancements, please contact the NSF Help Desk at 1-800-381-1532 (7:00 AM – 9:00 PM ET; Monday – Friday) or via firstname.lastname@example.org. Policy-related questions should be directed to email@example.com.
