Please submit three copies of all the materials listed below to the Chair of Psychology Departmental Review Committee (Dr. Nickell) at least two weeks prior to the anticipated start date. Additional time should be allowed where institutional review appears necessary. Note: We ask for 3 copies, rather than the usual 2 required by the university IRB, so that the student will receive a copy back.
Note: It is the principle researchers’ (faculty member) responsibility to provide secure storage for the Informed Consent forms and any audio/video tapes or photographs. These items must also be maintained for three years.Note: It is not the committee’s function to pass judgment on the merit of the research design, except in cases where design issues may bear on compliance with ethical guidelines.
