Frequently Asked Questions
What is the TRI 91-Day Writing Challenge?
The TRI 91-Day Writing Challenge will take place from June 1 – August 31, 2021. It is meant to encourage TRI award recipients to submit manuscripts for publications in peer-reviewed journals. Don’t forget to cite TRI!
Who is eligible for the Challenge?
Anyone who has received a TRI funding award from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2020, is salary-supported by TRI, and/or has used a TRI resource or service is eligible to participate in the Challenge.
Why should I participate in the 91-Day Writing Challenge?
Apart from the personal benefit of publishing, the 91-Day Writing Challenge brings fun and motivation to the process of manuscript writing. It also gives you access to TRI’s writing resources, if needed. Anyone who submits a manuscript for publication between June 1st and August 31st will be invited to TRI’s Summer Celebration, where various prizes will be awarded. In addition, publication of manuscripts is an expectation of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, the funder of TRI.
What is required for entry?
Submission of a manuscript is all that is required for entry. You will receive one entry into the prize drawing for every manuscript submitted that names you amongst the authors. Those who are named first author will receive an additional entry into the prize drawing per first-authorship manuscript.
Does the manuscript have to be directly related to my TRI award?
Manuscripts submitted may be tied directly or indirectly to a previous TRI award. In addition, manuscripts that utilize a TRI service or resource (e.g., REDCap, AR-CDR, TRI-supported statistical consult, TRI-supported coursework, etc.) are eligible for submission. One of the main goals of TRI funding is to foster the career development of researchers, so whether your manuscript is directly related to a TRI award or not, we hope that we have had a positive impact on your career as a researcher. All manuscripts that are submitted that reflect a TRI funded project, service, or resource should cite TRI! TRI citations support future funding of our CTSA.
How do I cite TRI?
When citing TRI you should cite all award numbers under which you have received TRI support. Support is determined by the date of award. Multi-year awards should cite award numbers that correspond with both the initial notice of award date and any subsequent funding years.
