    RBHS Definition for R01 Equivalents

    The purpose of this document is to provide clarification on what qualifies as an NIH R01 equivalent, as related to the RBHS Policies and Guidelines Governing Appointments, Promotions, and Professional Activities of the Faculty (A&P Guidelines); these Guidelines require “sustained and substantial peer-reviewed extramural support” for promotion on the tenure track and award of tenure. Note that for schools/units following the AAUP-AFT guidelines, which provides for a shorter tenure-track period than that in the AAUP-BHSNJ Guidelines, the length of the pre-tenure period will be taken into account in assessing productivity of the faculty member.

    Importantly, this document is not meant to be all-inclusive of every possible grant mechanism that may be considered, but rather to provide guidance as to examples of types of grants that will be considered as R01 equivalents.
