7.2 Proposal Preparation Checklist
 
The roadmap (http://apst.stsci.edu/apt/external/help/roadmap1.html) is a high level step-by-step guide to writing a Phase I proposal. It includes links to various documents and training videos.
Go to the APT webpage. Follow the instructions there to download and install the latest version of APT onto your machine. You can also ask your system administrator to do an institution-wide installation.
Use APT to fill out the Phase I form. Information on the use of APT, including movie tutorials, is available on the APT webpage. A description of which items are requested as well as guidelines for answers are presented in Chapter 8. Proposers can save work in progress, so APT submission can be completed over several sessions.
Go to the Cycle 22 Announcement webpage. Download one of the templates to create your PDF attachment. There are separate template files for GO/SNAP and for AR/Theory Proposals. Template files are available in several popular word-processing applications, including LaTeX and Microsoft Word.
Transform your edited template into a PDF file. Any figures in your proposal must be included into this PDF file. Go to the Cycle 22 Announcement webpage for instructions on how to create a PDF file from your edited template, and for instructions on how to include figures. We will provide the reviewers with the electronic PDF files so that figures can be viewed in color. However there is no guarantee that the reviewers will view the files electronically, so please make sure your figures are useful when printed using grey scales.
