Human Subjects IRB Protocol
Use the "Human Subjects Protocol" if your activities meet the definition of human research and you want to interview, survey, systematically observe, or collect other data from human subjects.
Complete a "Human Subjects Protocol" form, describing your proposed activities. The steps are:
Submit the completed protocol to the IRB by clicking here. This protocol may be submitted
at any time, although there are periodic
deadlines for protocols requiring Standard Review.
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.
See the example protocols if needed: Human Subjects Protocol: Examples
