Institutional review board procedures and implications l.jpg

Institutional Review Board Procedures and Implications

  • After the applied dissertation committee has approved the proposal and the IRB package, the student should forward a copy of the approved proposal together with the completed IRB submission package to the ARC for review. (See the ARC Web page, Navigating the IRB Process).

  • NO RESEARCH STUDY ACTIVITY SHOULD TAKE PLACE BEYOND THE PROPOSAL STAGE UNTIL OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION HAS BEEN RECEIVED FROM THE ARC, INDICATING THAT THE PROPOSED RESEARCH STUDY MEETS THE UNIVERSITY’S IRB REQUIREMENTS.

  • human subjects are not placed at unreasonable physical, mental, or emotional risk as a result of research.

  • the researchers are qualified to conduct research involving human subjects.

  • subjects are fully aware of the study’s parameters and what role they (and/or their data) play.
