Does my study need IRB review?
If you aren't sure if your study will need to be reviewed by the Murray State Institutional Review Board prior to beginning, these resources will help you decide. All research done for or by Murray State faculty, staff, or students that involves data on living people MUST submit either an IRB application or IRB determination form. This includes human subject studies where you are sure IRB oversight does not apply. In those cases you must still submit the determination form and receive your IRB Oversight Determination Letter.
