IRB forms are downloaded as Word files; type in your responses, add your project description, consent forms, and debrief forms, and then save either as a Word document or pdf and send to firstname.lastname@example.org Proposals are processed M-F 8 am-4 pm during the school year. Over breaks and holidays, proposals may be processed on a non daily basis. Full board reviews take approximately 10 workdays to complete initial reviews.
- Proposal Form for Research with Human Participants Attention! The IRB is using a new proposal form starting May, 2013 in order to improve documentation for meeting federal regulations. Any questions, please email IRB@grinnell.edu. (Please do not submit the form until ethics training is completed. Completion of ethics training is mandatory. You note the completion of training in Section III of the proposal form.)
- Protocol Modification Form for Research with Human Participants (If the modification involves new research team members, you must document that they have completed ethics training.)
- IRB Continuation Proposal Form Use a Contiinuation form when approved projects are continuing beyond their approved duration. Because researchers may not continue a project beyond their approved time without receiving IRB approval for the continuation, it is best to submit a continuation form at least 10 days prior to the project's expiration date.
