Human Subjects Research


Below you will find many useful links including applications for a new or continuing IRB protocol and sample documents to be used with research. If you are uncertain as to whether your project qualifies as human subjects research, please complete the IRB screening form below.

Please keep in mind: audio and videotaping require a separate statement of consent and a separate signature/date line on the consent form.

Use the consent form linked from this page when conducting a study with focus groups. The primary difference is that this form includes a statement about the researcher's inability to guarantee confidentiality among the group members.
