Research that involves active, human participants might be required to be submitted to a review process that ensures the best data, safety for participating subjects, and best research practices.

Institutional Review Board (IRB) review is required when:

IRB approval is not required when data collection is part of: 

  • normal educational practices
  • journalistic surveys or interviews
  • oral histories, biographies, or case studies not meant for generalizeable purposes
  • institutional or quality assessment

Projects that do not require IRB review might still present risks to human participants and thus call for the assurance of ethical principles and protocol.

Researchers and faculty advisors have primary responsibility for ensuring that any activities involving human participants are handled ethically.

If unsure about IRB review, please contact the IRB Chair to assist in deciding how to proceed.
