Instructions for Research Review

1. Complete required Human Research Subjects Protection Training. Once training is completed, a transcript is automatically emailed to IRB@Hartwick.edu.

2. Consider whether your project is “research” and if it should be exempt or reviewed, given guidelines reviewed in your training. Contact IRB@hartwick.edu if you have additional questions. The IRB will determine if project requires IRB review or is exempt.

3. Complete the  IRB Project Proposal form. The form and complete instructions for submission can be found on the IRB Form page

4. You will receive an electronic acknowledgment of receipt of your proposal and all relevant attachments from the IRB.

5. Respond promptly to any IRB feedback or requests received electronically before or after IRB review. Do not start project work until your proposal has been approved.

You should allow at least 14 days for your proposal to be reviewed and, if modifications are required, it could take longer.
