Submit a proposal

Thank you for your interest in submitting a concept proposal to the ITN. 

If you have not already done so, please consult the concept proposal guidelines for instructions on submitting your proposal. The guidelines also contain instructions for using the online system. 

Concept Proposal Template Forms

Online submission requires investigators to complete a proposal template off-line, and then upload it to the ITN's online submission and review system. Please be sure you have downloaded and completed the appropriate forms, linked at the bottom of this page.

Submit Proposals

Once you have completed the appropriate form, click on the link below to access the ITN's online concept proposal submission and review system (if you do not see a window, please disable all pop-up blockers on your browser). If you are a new user you will first need to create an account with the system.

Once logged-in to the system, click on the link to "Submit a New Manuscript" to submit a new proposal. NOTE: The ITN's submission and review system is configured from software designed for academic journals' online submission and review purposes, and as such there may be language that refers to "authors" (i.e., Investigators), "manuscripts" (i.e., Concept Proposals), or the "editorial office" (i.e., the ITN).

Once you have clicked on the link to Submit a New Manuscript (i.e., proposal), the system will take you through the steps for submitting your proposal.
