Application Forms & Samples
All investigators are required to complete the CITI online training in research ethics before submitting any protocols to the IRB (www.citiprogram.org).
All researchers will submit a "research protocol" to the Committee for review and approval. The protocol includes a description of your proposed study, its benefits and risks to participants, and a copy of the informed consent document by which participants give their consent to be included in the study. All of the required forms are listed below. You should download the forms, complete them, and mail the completed forms to IRB@ric.edu. Any form that is not completed properly will be returned for revisions. Faculty are responsible for ensuring that their students have completed the forms properly and supplied all required information.
When you download the forms, you should begin the filename with your last name so that it reads "SmithNewApplication" or "SmithContinuingReview", etc.
