Submission Guidelines

Guidelines

1. For all IRB and IACUC applications, submit one *.pdf file of a complete scanned application (including signature pages, supplementary materials, attachments, etc.) to researchcompliance@uca.edu. Do NOT password protect or otherwise encrypt the submission. Please only submit *.pdf files. Do NOT submit any hard copies of the application or its supplementary materials.

Scanned and digital signatures are now acceptable. There is no longer any need to deliver us original signatures as long as the scan clearly depicts the necessary signatures. Please include complete signature pages in your application.

2. For all modifications, submit an IRB Modification Form or an IACUC Modification Form along with one *.pdf file consisting of modified application pages and/or requested supplementary materials.  Please highlight revisions to facilitate your project approval process. Submit the files to researchcompliance@uca.edu. Do NOT password protect or otherwise encrypt the submission. Please only submit *.pdf files.

Do NOT submit IRB- or IACUC-related documents via campus mail. We can not assume responsibility for documents submitted via campus mail.

Problems?

If you are having trouble filling out, saving, or printing the PDF forms, use the following steps to configure your computer:

  1. Download the most current version of Adobe Reader. Make sure that Adobe Reader is your default program for opening *.pdf files.
  2. On the forms page, right click on the link of the desired form and click “Save As. . .” to save it your computer. Do NOT open the form in your browser and fill out the form in your browser.
  3. After saving to your computer, open the form with Adobe Reader. You should be able to save the form during and after editing and print the completed form.
  4. If you have any problems, feel free to contact the Research Compliance Office at 852-7460 or researchcompliance@uca.edu.
