Research Integrity

Office of Research Integrity

Research Integrity ensures research at Ball State University is in compliance with university policies and with applicable provisions of federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

A new version of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) project application (v.9) is now available on IRBnet. New research projects intended for IRB review should use the new application form as part of their project submission. The new form is incompatible with Google Chrome, and should be opened using Firefox or Internet Explorer. Additionally, Mac Users should use Adobe Reader, rather than Form Finder, to open the application.
