Institutional Review Board For The Protection Of Human Subjects (IRB)

DOES YOUR PROJECT NEED IRB APPROVAL?

  • Do you or your students use human subjects in research or class research assignments?
  • Do you or your students conduct surveys with any persons or institutions outside of the University of Scranton community?
  • Do you or your students use members of the University of Scranton community outside of your own classes?
  • Do you or your students plan to publish the results of a project involving human subjects research?
  • Have you been contacted by any persons outside of the University who wish to use members of the University of Scranton community as research subjects?
If you answered YES to any question above - YOU DO NEED THE IRB!
All research projects using human subjects, classroom assignments as well as individual research, must be submitted to the IRB for review. No phase of a project may begin until approval is obtained.
