The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a federally-mandated review board, which exists to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects. All researchers (faculty, staff and students) must submit their research projects which have human subjects to the IRB for review and approval.

Note: In response to the 2018 Revised Common Rule, the UW-Stout IRB forms, processes, and policies are changing.

To conduct research with human subjects at UW-Stout, you must:

  1. Take the online Human Subjects training*.
  2. Complete and submit the IRB Protocol form.
  3. Wait for approval before beginning your research. Please note that reviews may take up to 10 business days.
  4. If needed, you can apply for an extension of your project.
