SPINPlus Introduction

What is SPINPlus?

SPINPlus is a web-based system that includes a database of funding opportunities, a database of investigator profiles, and a matching alert service. SPINPlus includes three product modules: SPIN, SMARTS, and GENIUS.

GENIUS

Global WWW network and database of investigator profiles of scientific and scholarly expertise.

SPIN

Funding Opportunities

database of national and international government and private funding sources.

SMARTS 

Investigator Funding Alert System matches investigator profile information with SPIN. Matching is conducted on a daily basis and programs are emailed to researchers.

SPIN Overview

What is SPIN?

  • SponsoredProgramsInformationNetwork (SPIN) is a funding opportunities database designed to provide up-to-date information on current federal, non-federal, and international funding opportunities, including: Fellowships, Research Grants, Publication Support, Sabbatical Support, RFAs (NIH Guide), Curriculum Development, Conference Support, RFPs (Commerce Business Daily), and more.

  • Contains more than 2,500 sponsoring agencies, which together fund over 11,000 separate funding opportunities.

  • Primary source information obtained directly from the sponsoring agencies to ensure the integrity of the data.

  • SPIN enables users to search the database using selections from various categories (keywords, location, sponsor, deadline, etc.)


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

SPIN is supported and maintained by editors who take source materials like this recent NIH program announcement...

Advanced Search

Advanced Search Categories

We are now going to run a sample search utilizing the main search categories.


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

The most common category to utilize in Advanced Search is the Keywords category. Keywords are words/terms that are used to describe the research areas funded by a particular program. From the Advanced Search page, click Keywords.

Specific Keywords Within a Major Topic Area

Alphabetical Listing

  • Choose specific keywords from an alphabetical listing of the Keyword Thesaurus.

  • Choose an entire division of keywords by major topic for a very broad search.

  • Choose specific keywords within a major topic area.

Entire Division of Keywords

  • Search for particular keywords via the Search for a Particular Keyword box.

Search for a Particular Keyword box

Advanced Search

Selecting Keywords

The Keywords screen appears. Keywords are broken into 12 major divisions. You can select keywords in four different ways:

Now we will view an example of how to search using the Search for a Particular Keyword box.


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

Advanced Search

Selecting Keywords

Since keywords of interest may fall across two or more major divisions, you can search the entire Keyword Thesaurus for a particular word(s), by entering a root word (ex. bio) into the Search for a Particular Keyword box. Click Search.


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

Advanced Search

Selecting Keywords

Keywords containing the root word “bio” will be returned. Highlight keywords from the resulting list and click Select to save keywords.


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

Keywords that appear

in all caps on the list

indicate general

keywords. Selecting

these keywords will

increase the number of

general “hits” returned.

Once you have selected keywords, click Select then Return to return to the Advanced Search page.

Advanced Search

Selecting Keywords

To select multiple keywords from the list, hold down the Control key (or Command key on a Mac) while clicking the mouse.

OR Logic is automatically imposed on selected keywords.


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

Selected keywords will appear in the text box below the Keywords category and will automatically be ANDED with the first selection of keywords (ex. Cancer Biology AND Breast Cancer.)

Click Use Boolean AND Logic from the Advanced Search page.

Selected keywords (ex. Cancer Biology) will appear in the text box below the Keywords category.

Click the second Keywords link. The Keywords screen will appear where you can make keyword selections.

Click the first Keywords link. The Keywords screen will appear where you can make keyword selections.

Advanced Search

Selecting Keywords

You can also select Keywords using AND Logic. To select keywords using AND Logic:


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

After Keywords, focus the search by adding criteria under appropriate categories.

Geographic Restrictions should be used to restrict programs based on where you are located. Choose your state, region(s), and NO RESTRICTIONS to include programs that do not impose geographic restrictions.

Locations Tenable allows you to specify where you would like to go to carry out the award. Include Any/No Restrictions to include programs that do not specify where the award must be carried out.

Choose your citizenship and Any/No Restrictions to include those programs that do not impose citizenship restrictions.

Select Award Types if you are looking for a particular funding mechanism (ex. Research Grants/R&D only) to exclude funding mechanisms you are not interested in (ex. Fellowships, Internships, etc.)

Select the country in which you are geographically located to receive relevant results.

To exclude programs for which you are not eligible, select Applicant Types that describe both the individual and the institution applying for the award.

Advanced Search


Spinplus tutorial infoed home presentation spinplustrainingcd2

The Deadline(s) field can be used to narrow search results by deadline date(s). Click Deadline(s) from the Advanced Search page.

Advanced Search

Selecting Deadlines

  • Choose Equals, Greater Than, or Less Than a specific date to exclude certain SPIN programs by deadline date.

  • Choose Range to search for programs with deadline dates within a specific range.

  • Keywords: Bleeding Disorders OR Blood Diseases

  • Applicant Types: College, 4-year OR Colleges/Universities

  • Award Types: Research Grants/R&D

AND, OR, or NOT logic is incorporated among categories.

  • In the example below, in order to get results, each program must include ONE of the Keywords AND ONE of the Applicant Types, but NOT ONE of the Award Types.
