Checklist for Submitting Surveys for Review

Design survey instrument and determine target population and desired timeframe.

The survey instrument must be in final format before a Survey Review Application can be submitted.

Begin the Survey Review Application to learn what, if any, review will be required.

The application requests detailed information about your research.  Because the application must be completed in one session, it is recommended that you preview it for planning purposes. A reference document is available after the preliminary questions on the Survey Review Application.

If it is determined during the submission process that IRB approval will be necessary, additional documentation and training before submission will be required.

The IRB Checklist will be helpful to ensure all necessary information is included.

Submit completed Survey Review Application, Survey Instrument in final format and supporting documents for review.
