An applicant may submit up to three publications to support the proposal. If you do not have publications considered pertinent to the proposal, you may submit three other publications which best represent your work. These publications may be Published or In Press (meaning that it was accepted for publication, but the publication has yet to be distributed).
AHA will not accept a publication in Submission (under review for potential publication). However, if a Submitted paper is approved for publication prior to AHA Peer Review, the AHA peer review staff will convey this information to the reviewers, provided that the grants officer sends to AHA an official email notification from the publisher. AHA will not accept a copy of the article.
While every effort will be made to distribute information to reviewers upon receipt, submission of publication information does not guarantee inclusion in peer review consideration as review meetings may have already concluded at the time the information was submitted.
Abstracts are acceptable for junior applicants (such as fellows, Fellow-to-Faculty, Mentored Clinical & Population Research Award, Scientist Development Grant applicants).
Predoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate student may not have published materials .If so, create a Portable Document Format (pdf) file that states "None" and upload it.
For the Collaborative Sciences Award program, each co-principal investigator has the ability to upload three publications to support the proposal.
