Scientific rigor and transparency is key to the successful application of knowledge toward improving health outcomes. The NIH rigor and transparency policy was announced in the fall of 2015 and was applied to most research grants submitted on or after January 25, 2016.
dkNET is committed to helping researchers understand and comply with new requirements and recommendations coming from the NIH and publishers aimed at improving the rigor, reproducibility and transparency of reported research. dkNET can help researchers generate an authentication report for key biological resources such as antibodies and cell lines, using our resource identification system (RRIDs) and tools, in accordance with the NIH policy*.
*Disclaimer: Researchers should verify the authenticity of their research resources before grant submission or publication. Current NIH guidelines do not include clear instructions for the authentication process. Our recommendations for authenticating the resources on dknet.org are based on experts’ opinions and suggestions from volunteer working groups. Information provided on dknet.org does not represent NIH policy. dkNET ingests resource identification information from relevant databases in a timely manner, but timeliness may vary by resource center. For the most current information, please check individual resource centers directly. dkNET bears no responsibility for the accuracy and reliability of ingested content.
