Is My Project Human Subjects Research?
The CSUB IRB only reviews projects that meet the IRB definition of "human research." If you believe that your project may not be human subjects research, it is wise to get the judgment of the IRB by submitting your project to the IRB by filing out the Is My Project Human Subjects Research? form. Some CSUB graduate programs require their students to file evidence from the IRB establishing that their project either: [a] was reviewed and authorized by the IRB or [b] did not need IRB review. If your proposed activity DOES meet the definition of human research, then working through the form will tell you what protocol you need to submit to the IRB.

The IRB does not accept direct submissions from students. If you are a student, when your faculty research mentor is satisfied with your IRB submission materials, provide him/her with an electronic copy, completed as explained above. This document will be submitted by your faculty research mentor, using the above link. IRB reviewer feedback will be provided directly to the faculty research mentor, who will work with you on requested clarifications and revisions.
