Permission to Conduct Research Involving Human Beings - Institutional Review Board (IRB)

For both ethical and legal reasons, USF requires all researchers (including students) who conduct studies involving participation of human beings to have their projects reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) for the Protection of Human Subjects prior to the start of their studies. Virtually all research studies in the College of Education will require approval by the IRB as these studies involve the use of human subjects. Master’s students who have chosen the thesis option, must therefore complete the required IRB training and submit an application for approval of their study by the IRB.
