Why didn't the IRB return all of my documents after reviewing them?
The IRB only returns documents if revisions are required or if clarification is needed. If you do not receive a document back from the IRB after submitting it for review, this means that the document has met all of the IRB's requirements and can be used once you receive your IRB approval letter.
What is the IRB process?
Obtain chair or mentor approval to begin your research (for Student Research).
Submit your application and supporting documents to the IRB at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your application will receive a number, and will go through "preliminary review".
Revisions will be requested.
Once revisions are accepted, the IRB issues an approval letter.
In general, you are welcome to provide compensation to your participants, however, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Certain states outlaw the use of lotteries, raffles, or drawings as a means to compensate or recruit research participants. Please keep this in mind as you design your research project. If you need assistance, review the Raffle Laws document, or contact the IRB.
Any compensation above $600 within a single year is considered income and must be filed on the participant's taxes.
If your study is grant funded, you may need to work with the Grants Office to properly compensate your participants.
