Institutional Review Board

Research Review Categories

As a part of the application process, individuals designate which type of review they anticipate will be needed, (Exempt, Expedited, or Full Board). ALL Review categories require IRB approval.

Only an IRB member can determine actual review necessary. Researchers are encouraged to contact the IRB prior to submitting an application if they are unsure of their review level.

Review Times are estimates based upon the following factors:

  • The Quality and completeness of the submission.
  • The number of studies in the queue at the time of submission (studies are processed in the order in which they are received).
  • The length of time it takes applicants to respond to pending items and questions for the IRB committee.
  • The availability of the IRB members (all members are volunteers).

Please remember no data can be collected until the study receives IRB approval.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
