REPORTS - Effective Fall 2013
Expedited and/or Full Review protocols:
For all completed studies or studies that will be completed by their respective expiration date, the IRB will require submission of a final report (see template below). This report should be submitted with a continuing review form, for official closure of the study. You may submit these items via electronic submission on the IRB website: http://www.utpa.edu/irb or by email to the IRB (firstname.lastname@example.org). If emailing directly, please include the IRB number, the continuing review form and final report.
Submission of a final report will also be required for any studies that have expired, either by failure of the researcher to send a continuing review request form or the decision to let the study expire.
Although these types of protocols do not expire, the IRB will require yearly submission of a status report (see template below) to assess the study’s progress, or a final report when study is completed.
For student researchers, either report (status or final) may be submitted by the student researcher. However, upon students’ graduation or failure of the student to submit the report, it will be the faculty advisor’s responsibility to submit the report to the IRB.
Status Report Template (Exempt Protocols) submitted on a yearly basis.
Final Report Template (Exempt/Expedited/Full Review Protocols) submitted once study has been completed.
