What do I have to do to get IRB approval of my research?

Fill out the IRB's application form, describing what you intend to do, the subject pool you intend to work with, and the measures you intend to employ to obtain informed consent and protect subjects' privacy.  You'll also need to take an online course on the ethics of research on human beings.  This course takes roughly three hours to complete. After you take the tutorial and pass the quiz, the site will provide a certificate of completion for you. Please save this form as a PDF, JPEG, or GIF and submit it with your protocol.
