Institutional Review Board (IRB)

IRB Forms

Closed for Thanksgiving. The Research Compliance Office will be closed at 12:00 pm on November 24th. Protocols received after that will be processed on November 30th. Protocol decisions will also be sent out on that day. If you should have any questions, please contact the Interim Research Compliance Officer at (501) 569-8656. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving!

IMPORTANT: There are TWO new forms for protocols:

  1. Request for Review: covers all types of review, and
  2. Request for Determination: covers programs that are probably Not Human Subjects Research (NHSR): such as needs assessment, program evaluation. This forms requires a CITI but not consent forms etc. Caveat: If the project is determined to be HSR, a new form will need to be submitted (see #1) etc. This may cause delays in the review.

We believe these forms (though more detailed) will result in quicker reviews as more information will have been elicited a priori.

Please share your feedback about the forms with

Effective July 1, 2015, the IRB will accept only these forms in the requests for review. Continuation, Modification reviews will employ the old forms.

All forms are Word files.
