Information for Investigators
Deadline for Participating in a Research Study
Only investigators affiliated with the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences (SPBS) may use participants from the PRP. This includes: (1) Faculty members in the SPBS; (2) Graduate students under the direction of tenure-track, tenured, or emeritus faculty sponsors; and (3) Undergraduate students conducting research (e.g., honors thesis or directed study) under the direction of tenure-track, tenured, or emeritus faculty sponsors. The SPBS director will review any other requests from individuals not included in the list above if proper Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval has been obtained.
Any investigator wishing to use undergraduate SPBS students in their research must recruit participants through the PRP. If you feel that your research is an exception to using the PRP (e.g., running a classroom-based study), you must get clearance from the SPBS director. All investigators must have IRB approval for their research and must have training on the ethical treatment of human participants (again, some special circumstances can be cleared with the SPBS director such as running an evaluation of the PRP for internal use).
