To all submitters: Depending on your status (faculty/staff or student) and type of project (research or exempt), please follow the instructions below. Also, please use the following Informed Consent template.
Request for Review of Research, Faculty and Staff
Use these forms for any non-exempt research activity. The forms can be used for a new proposal, for amendment to an approved proposal, or for yearly renewal, and can be used by faculty, staff, or students doing independent research (including non-exempt doctoral dissertation research), or off-campus researchers. Manhattanville students carrying out projects for coursework should use the Student Research Form or Exemption Form, below.
You must submit both the Request for Review of Research form and the Informed Consent Form Checklist with your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. The General IRB Submission Checklist is provided below for your reference, but is not required for submission.
For doctoral students, the forms must be approved and submitted to email@example.com by a faculty member who is supervising the research. This faculty member should be listed as a co-principle investigator on the proposal.
Request for Exemption, Faculty and Staff
Use this form for faculty and staff investigators to request an exemption from review, if you believe it is warranted. A detailed checklist on the form will help to determine whether the activity is likely to be exempt, though only the IRB can certify it as such.
Student Exemption Form
This form is used by student investigators who are carrying out an exempt research project as part of a college course, for exempt doctoral dissertations, or for exempt master's research projects. (A detailed checklist on the form will help to determine whether the activity is likely to be exempt; if not, you will need to use the Student Research Form, below.) The form must be approved and submitted by a faculty mentor or instructor to firstname.lastname@example.org
Student Research Form
These forms are used by student investigators who are carrying out a project as part of a college course, and the research includes activities that are not expected to be exempt. For doctoral students working on a dissertation research project, use the Faculty Staff Research Form above. (For guidance on whether an activity is exempt, see the detailed checklist on the Student Exemption Form, above, or the Guidelines for Investigators.)
You must submit both the Student Research Form and the Informed Consent Form Checklist with your submission.
