Yes. When you receive data from an external collaborator, that activity is deemed to be in furtherance of your research endeavors and should be disclosed as Other Support. JHU data should only be shared with external collaborators under a data use agreement that is executed by an authorized official in ORA or JHURA.

No. Financial support from JHU—including JHU start-up packages and grants from non-NIH sources that flow through JHU—does not need to be reported as Other Support.
In general, no. The first step in determining whether research constitutes a foreign component is to evaluate whether a portion of the research is being conducted outside of the United States. In this case, all of the work is being conducted in the US, so there is no foreign component. The foreign support provided in the form of the fellow’s salary support should, however, be listed as part of your Other Support.
Yes. All support received for academic and research activities, whether monetary or in-kind compensation, should be disclosed as Other Support. This includes honorariums and funding for travel expenses.
No. Non-research activities such as consulting for industry or serving as an expert witness in litigation do not need to be disclosed as Other Support, including non-research outside activities for foreign-based corporations. Those activities must, however, be disclosed to the university (through eDisclose) for conflict-of-interest and conflict-of-commitment review.
Yes. When informal collaborations rise to the level of co-authorship on academic papers, you should disclose that activity as Other Support. You can list this activity as “informal collaborative activity with__,” listing the names of your collaborators.
Yes. Available resources in support of and/or related to an investigator’s research endeavors should be disclosed even if they relate to work that is performed outside of a researcher’s appointment period. Before you accept an appointment to work at a foreign institution, even during the summer months, you must obtain approval from your Dean’s office following the process for your school.
This response is dependent upon specific details that surrounding the activity. One common example identified by the NIH involves a PI on an NIH grant who also has an appointment and a lab at a foreign university. The research being done at the foreign lab is unrelated to the PI’s NIH project. This would not qualify as a foreign component of the NIH research, as the foreign work is not part of the NIH-funded project. However, it is a resource made available to the researcher in support of their research. Therefore, the foreign appointment should be listed on the Biosketch and the lab resources must be reported as Other Support. Personal payments to the PI (in the form of honoraria or travel reimbursement from the foreign institution) should be reported as an outside financial interest through eDisclose, and the PI must report the foreign appointment and receive approval through the PI’s Dean’s office.
