My institution has determined that it meets the eligibility criteria to participate in SMART IRB. What is the process for joining?
The process for joining SMART IRB involves:
- Downloading and reviewing the SMART IRB Agreement.
- Once you have received an invitation link to initiate the Joinder process, completing an online registration form to provide certain basic information about your institution that is required under the SMART IRB Agreement.
- Downloading, obtaining appropriate signature, and uploading your institution’s SMART IRB Joinder Agreement (see next question “What does my institution sign to join SMART IRB”?).
- Awaiting confirmation of activation as a SMART IRB Participating Institution.
