Some Open Science wackaloon has posted a grant application that he plans to submit here
Now, there is no value I see in the pre-publication of a grant application you haven't submitted yet. I'm not seeing the purpose of this, particularly for my operation.
The fleeting thought I had was whether I would be willing to post
1) old grant proposals that went unfunded
2) old grant proposals that were funded but we've dropped that line in my laboratory
3) grant proposals funding our current work
The point being my usual desire to help folks understand the granting process. The occasional handful of grant samples posted on IC websites can't cover the breadth of NIH applicants, so perhaps more examples would be useful.
I have a pretty strong aversion to doing this and am going to have to explore why that is the case.
