Templates for Heliophysics Division (Appendix B) ROSES proposals

Proposers to all ROSES opportunities in Appendix B (Heliophysics), are strongly encouraged to use the templates for Current and Pending Support for PIs and all Co-Is, regardless of time commitment and the templates for summary table of work effort and the "Open Science and Data Management Plan" (formerly the Data Management Plan).

Starting with proposals to ROSES-2023 the requirements have been increased, see B.1 The Heliophysics Research Program Overview and https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/faqs/OSDMP. Data, model results, and other information created with NASA funding are subject to NASA’s Heliophysics Division Science Data Management Policy.

1. Data Management Plans

NASA requires that most solicitations collect Data Management Plans (DMPs) with proposals, and ROSES is no exception. Appendix B (the Heliophysics section) of Research Opportunities in Earth and Space Science (ROSES) treats DMPs differently. Whereas most NASA solicitations collect DMPs in a plan text box on the NSPIRES cover page, most program elements in Appendix B (and program element C.22 Habitable Worlds which is jointly run by planetary and Heliophysics) require that the DMP be included in the proposal document in a special two-page section, entitled "Data Management Plan" immediately following the references and citations for the Scientific/Technical/Management (S/T/M) portion of the proposal. Proposers should read the Heliophysics Research Program Overview, B.1 of ROSES.

The template from the Heliophysics division is provided here as a Word doc.


2. Launch Accommodation Worksheet for Heliophysics Flight Opportunities in Research and Technology

A launch accommodation worksheet must be filled out and included as part of the proposal pdf by proposers to Heliophysics Flight Opportunities in Research who are requesting a cubesat or small sat. The filled out worksheet is to be included in the proposal PDF file directly following the data management plan. Questions regarding this launch accommodation worksheet may be directed to Dan Moses and Amy Winebarger.


3. Current and Pending Support templates

Beginning with ROSES-2022, all proposals to Appendix B Elements must include a Current and Pending Support (C&P) table for PIs and Co-Is following a standardized format.  PDF, MS Excel and MS Word templates of this table and instructions for their use can be found below. Proposals that do not submit a C&P table in the correct format, even if determined to be selected or selectable for funding, may not be funded until an appropriate C&P table is submitted.


4. Space Weather Centers of Excellence Quad Chart Template

The SWxCOE Quad is a required submission for all Space Weather Centers of Excellence proposers. A PowerPoint template of this quad can be found below. Please direct any questions to Jesse Woodroffe.
