Technical Reports—What to Submit

In compliance with USAID annual reporting requirements, CRSP subcontracts provide that an annual report must be submitted for each funded CRSP study. Submission of a full technical report implies that the article is original and has not been published or accepted in a peer-reviewed journal.

Depending on the status of each funded study under your subcontract, an abstract only or a progress or final report (including an abstract) may be owed.

To determine what you need to submit, identify which scenario below applies to each study approved under your subcontract:

• Investigation begun; data analysis not begun:

Abstract only

• Some or all data collected; analysis not complete:

Abstract and progress report

• Data collected and analysis complete:

Abstract and final report 

Format for Progress and Final Technical Reports

Heading Material

Report (text not to exceed 10 pages)

Technical Report Preparation Guidelines

Please use the Guide for Authors from the journal Aquaculture as a model for annual report submissions. The major CRSP departure from the Aquaculture Guide is the position of authors’ initials (examples in Citations Section below).
