Book Description

September 19, 2007 0195320271 978-0195320275 1
A veritable cookbook for individuals or corporations seeking funding from the federal government, The Complete Writing Guide to NIH Behavioral Science Grants contains the latest in technical information on NIH grants, including the new electronic submission process. Some of the most successful grant writers in history have contributed to this volume, offering key strategies as well as tips and suggestions in areas that are normally hard to find in grant writing guides, such as budgeting, human subjects, and power analysis. A "who's who" among grant reviewers, this guidebook provides "inside" information as to why some grants are scored well while others flounder during review. A must-read for both entry level grant writers making headway in the complex NIH grant system for the first time as well as more seasoned investigators who can't seem to break the barrier to funded research grants, Drs. Scheier and Dewey's comprehensive volume provides simple and clear explanations into the reasons why some grants get funded, and a step-by-step guide to writing those grants.

Editorial Reviews

Review


"The most remarkable aspect of this guide is how lively and engaging a book on grant writing can be! The authors show by example the importance of clear and focused writing, a central theme throughout. Organization is the key, which the editors accomplish by structuring the book around a central framework...In approximately 500 pages, the editors and their team have pooled their knowledge, experience, and expertise to create a thoroughly inclusive and readable single sourcebook covering the ins and outs of NIH grant writing. I've been a researcher for close to three decades and a receipient of NIH grants, but I still learned new things from reading this book."--Howard M. Kravitz, DO, MPH for Doody's-- a 5-star review!!


"...not only an excellent reference for how to write an NIH proposal, but it is also a tremendously useful source of information and insight to help demystify the federal funding process...a must-have book for anyone who considers writing an NIH proposal for the first time, but it is also ideal for grant writers in general and is valuable even for experienced NIH researchers. The overall flavor of the writing is of encouragement, leaving one with the sense that it is entirely possible to write an NIH proposal that results in funding. This book is so instructive, encouraging, and replete with links to useful resources that almost any research with a good idea could cook up a competitive NIH proposal."--PsycCritiques

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide June 4, 2008
Format:Hardcover
Nice, in depth guide. The only complaint is that much of what is discussed is readily available if you read the guides published by NIH. The bits of 'gold' are worth it though. I'd recommend this grant guide second only to the classic Research Proposals by Ogden and Goldberg and way before many of the much lesser guides out there (many of those are way to "intro-level" to be useful).
