Although the landscape of research funding is continually changing, over the past several years one feature has remained consistent: people who are young in their careers are expected to take on not only the responsibility of applying for external funding, but are also required to get it, manage it, and renew it in order to keep their research programs, projects, and careers viable. The Research Funding Guidebook begins at the point many grant seekers can identify withùrejection. Part I emphasizes how to resubmit unfunded applications to make them more competitive. The material contained in this section is invaluable, especially since funding sources are now limiting the number of times the same application can be resubmitted. Part II goes on to highlight the practical issues of a project after funding has been obtained. Here, the authors provide a map of the people and places that must become part of a researcherÆs daily and weekly routine. The guidance provided in this part of the book includes a checklist that can be used to aid the newly funded investigatorÆs progress. Time management, an essential but often overlooked feature of research funding, is also dealt with in this section. The subjects of other sections of this volume include the "small business" aspects of maintaining funding for a project, and the process of targeting continued funding by determining the next fundable step of a project. This is a hands-on guide that will never be far from the reach of those using it. Topics like what to include in a project proposal, tips for competitive writing, and how to select funding sources are easily accessed. In addition, helpful checklists and samples are provided along the way. These practical features and the comprehensive, up-to-date information presented make The Research Funding Guidebook an indispensable reference for new and experienced investigators alike. Anyone interested in research funding in any academic discipline will find this book useful.
