INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARDS FOR HUMAN RESEARCH SUBJECTS

The United States Department of Health and Human Services has established a Code of Federal Regulation for the protection of human subjects (45 CFR 46) embodying the principles of respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. Compliance with this regulation is overseen by the Department's Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP). Under this regulation, any Smith College student, faculty or staff member (including visitors) conducting research on or off campus that involves human subjects must seek review of the research by the appropriate college Institutional Review Board (IRB). Researchers from outside the Smith College community conducting research on the Smith campus must also seek approval from the appropriate Smith College IRB for their work.

Where to Submit Research Protocols

Visit the Smith College IRB website to view submission guidelines, obtain the most current forms, and review IRB membership and meeting schedules.

If you are in the School for Social Work, visit their website.
