ARE YOU CONDUCTING JOURNALISTIC REPORTING OR DOCUMENTING PERSONAL HISTORIES?

What you can expect from this situation?

We will need to determine if this is research. Complete the "Determination of Human Research Worksheet" form. Address the questions the IRB will ask about your project such as: "Are you reporting verbatim from a journalistic approach, or are you making generalizations about a group or population?"

  

What steps will you take during this process?

Refer to the How to Submit a Determination of Human Research Worksheet page for more information. 

  

Do you need to complete CITI Training?

No. To submit a Human Research Determination form you do not have to complete CITI training. However, if it is determined that your study meets the criteria for human subjects research, you will need to complete the CITI training.

  

What else do you need to submit with your application?

You will not be required to upload any additional documents.
