Attention researchers: The Office of Research Integrity has recently updated all forms used in IRB Research Protocol Submission.

The new IRB forms can be accessed through IRBNet in the Document Library, under Forms and Templates. Forms will no longer be available to download via the ORI website.

The new forms require Adobe Reader Version XI and are all in PDF form. (MAC Users: You will need to use Adobe Reader and not Finder to view and use these forms.) Old forms are no longer being accepted for submission - any submission containing the old IRB forms will need to be re-submitted using the new version of the forms.

Please discard any old IRB forms from your computer. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions at 765-285-5052 or
