Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Submission Requirements:
- Protocols are due by 5PM on the deadline day in University Hall 275.
- Number of copies required: one original signed protocol
- Protocol packet must be collated and stapled.
- Your protocol will either need to be reviewed at the full committee meeting (dates above), or will go directly to the committee Chair for review. Once the protocol is reviewed either by the full committee or the Chair, it takes a minimum of 30 days to respond to researchers with any requested revisions from the committee.
Summer Protocol Submissions
Researchers may submit protocols during June and July (6/1/15 – 7/31/15) on a rolling basis. There are no deadlines during these summer months. Protocols that are submitted between June 1st and July 31st will be reviewed on a first come first served basis. Please note that some research activities may require full committee review, especially those that involve greater than minimal risk to participants. Protocols that are greater than minimal risk may not be reviewed until the first SACPHS meeting in August. Deadlines for new submissions and full committee meetings will resume in Fall semester, on August 4, 2015.
