Local (SBU) IRB Submission Guidelines

Regarding studies already approved or submitted in IRBNet as of February 26, 2019: All submissions related to these studies will continue to be reviewed in IRBNet until the time of continuing review. From the time of continuing review and onward, these studies will be reviewed in myResearch. 

All studies with an expiration date after February 27, 2019 will be imported into myResearch and available to the Principal Investigator and study team members in their myResearch Inbox. These studies will be imported as a “shell,” which means that some but not all of the study data will be transferred into the myResearch application. The Principal Investigator and study team members are responsible for reviewing all automatically imported information for accuracy and completing the remainder of the application prior to submission for continuing review.  In order to submit a continuing review application for a study imported into myResearch, see the continuing review submission instructions below. 

As of February 2019, no new studies will be accepted in IRBNet. All new studies must be submitted for review in myResearch IRB.

Note: Please refer to the first page of the continuing review manual below for instructions if you are unable to locate one of your studies in myResearch.
