NASA's Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences
ROSES 2022 Solicitation
Please read C.1 - the Planetary Science Research Program Overview if proposing to a Planetary Science Division program.
It is the responsibility of the investigators selected for these programs to acquire any needed data. Therefore, before submitting a proposal, the investigator must determine that all data required for the proposed investigation are available. Spacecraft mission data to be used in proposed work must be available in the Planetary Data System (PDS) or an equivalent, publicly accessible archive at least 30 days prior to the full proposal submission deadline, unless otherwise specified in the program call. The calendar of record for data released in the PDS can be found at:
ROSES requires submission of Data Management Plans (DMPs) along with almost all proposals. The quality of the DMP will be considered as part of the evaluation of intrinsic merit. It will be treated as part of the overall management plan of the project. Proposers requiring a DMP are strongly encouraged to read section 3.7 of C.1 - the Planetary Science Research Program Overview and to review the ROSES DMP FAQ page. Those proposing to the Planetary Science Division are strongly encouraged to use the planetary science division DMP template that may be downloaded here.
The Individual Proposer's Archive Guide (IPAG)and Strategy for writing a good data management plan for a ROSES proposal are available on the PPI website.
Proposers should communicate with the PDS Discipline Node responsible for curating similar data (links to the PDS Discipline Nodes are at to discuss procedures and requirements prior to proposing to a Planetary Science Division ROSES-2022 program element. For proposals where derived data products will be deposited in the Planetary Data System, these data products must be in PDS4 format. Guidelines for planning for the submission data in this format to the PDS are available at Proposers intending to archive data or products in the PDS must obtain and include confirmation, in the form of a letter of support from the appropriate Discipline Node, that the PDS is willing to accept their submission. This letter must be included in the proposal package and placed in a section for Statements of Commitment and Letters of Support, Feasibility and Endorsement (see Appendix C.1, Section 3.7.7 ).
The following table gives the key dates for each of the NRAs supported by these pages. (For No Due Date programs, the NSPIRES page for those program elements will display a "Proposals Due" date, but that is simply the end date for the current ROSES, after which proposals may be submitted to the program element with the same name in the next ROSES. See Appendix C.1, Section 2.4. for more details.)
