CLIC Distributed Surveys
The CTSA Program supports high quality translational and clinical research locally, regionally and nationally. Surveys are one way to efficiently conduct research and collect pertinent information. The purpose of a survey may be to uncover answers, evoke discussion, discover resources, guide decision-making and/or to compare results.
In order to maintain the current level of high quality research supported by the program, there’s a need for clear and controlled processes for survey deployment and archival. For CTSA Program members or hubs interested in creating and/or distributing a survey, please reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
For further guidance on creating and distributing surveys, please review the CTSA Program Process Guidance for Surveys document.
These surveys fall under the NCATS Policy for Surveys and the NCATS PO (Erica Rosemond) has approved that these surveys answer "Yes" to the following two questions. Thus the program is conducting NIH research and will be considered exempt from the Paperwork Reduction Act approval requirements as outlined by the 21st Century Cures Act:
- 1) Will the program analyze the project outcomes in a systematic way?
- 2) Will the program publicize the results of your systematic analyses?
A list of all current and past instruments created and distributed by CLIC as of April 1, 2019 can be found here.

The Common Metrics Initiative (CMI) Multi-Year Report was released by the Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration (CLIC) to hub-specific web pages on the CLIC website on February 28, 2019.

The purpose of the Great CTSA Team Science Contest was to find the best ideas in all of CTSA-land for encouraging better team science. The CTSAs have been operating for as long as ten years and many hubs have been trying out and testing novel ideas for how to encourage better collaboration and teamwork in biomedical research. We want to find...
