Try the New LikeThis Search Tool Available Through eRA Commons

Principal Investigators, have you ever wanted to see what NIH has
awarded in your area of interest? Would you like to find out which study
section reviews the applications similar to the ones you are proposing?

If so, we encourage you to explore LikeThis (beta), a new search tool
linked to the eRA Commons! You can enter a scientific abstract or access
your own applications or grants and then click on LikeThis to get a
listing of similar grants and/or publications.

No need to worry about your proposed research strategy being seen by
others. The LikeThis beta version requires a Commons login, so any
information you enter is confidential.

After you log into Commons, you will find the link along the right side
of the home page at the bottom of the Additional Links section.

Here are some helpful resources – an Overview , a
User Guide and FAQs to navigate LikeThis.

So go ahead and use the LikeThis tool and send us your feedback or
questions to the LikeThis mailbox

In case the new tool makes you want to sing, go ahead and get your beat
box on…
