IRB Document Review is an asynchronous service to support students who are doing human subjects research and are writing recruitment materials and consent letters for their IRB application. This service is intended for students who cannot attend our group writing sessions or prefer to review feedback on their own time.
You will register below and attach your recruitment materials and/or consent letter on your registration form. An IRB member will review your documents without you present and send you written and/or video feedback for you to revise your documents on your own time. You will receive feedback within 48 hours of the time you register for.
If you register for IRB Document Review, you will not be scheduled to meet or talk with an IRB member in real-time. If you want to work with someone in real-time, please register for group writing sessions or attend IRB office hours.
Please note that the person who reviews your documents will not be the person who later reviews your application or gives you IRB approval. You may still receive additional feedback after you submit your application.
We can review your recruitment materials and/or consent letter. If you submit a consent letter, please make sure you are using the most current NCU IRB consent letter template. Please note that we cannot review templates from other IRBs or institutions.
