What is research

What is Research?

  • Research is defined by federal regulation as systematic investigation designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.

    (45 CFR 46.102)


Classroom research projects

Classroom “Research” Projects

  • In some situations, there may not be IRB requirements for professors wishing to teach research techniques to their classes by having students develop and execute a “protocol” as a class project.

    • If learning a research technique is the objective of the process and there is no contribution to generalizable knowledge, this change applies.


Classroom projects may be research

Classroom Projects MAY be Research

  • If a classroom project is systematically designed as a research project and contributes to general knowledge, the protocol should be submitted for review.

  • Common indicators a project may be generalizable include the following:

    • Intent to publish project results outside class

    • Projects designed to contribute to future phases of work

    • Projects designed to offer further insight into existing knowledge

    • Students collecting data to be used by other research project
