Institutional Review Board Home


Jacksonville University recognizes that an Institutional Review Board is an indispensable body regarding oversight of research activities undertaken by its faculty, staff, and students. As research activities often involve the potential for abuse of a subject's autonomy and / or privacy rights, Jacksonville University has developed this board to ensure that the rights of all research subjects are protected. All research that involves human subjects, tissues/specimens, data/records, or surveys requires review and approval from the IRB. Researchers may not collect data from human subjects until after IRB approval has been obtained.

 IRBNet Resources

The JU IRB is only accepting online submission through the platform IRBNet.  In order to submit, you will have to create a User Profile using the New User Registration Guide.  Additional training guides can be found below.



IRBNet also has a database of research training resources available here. This is a free resource available to all JU faculty, staff and students. The username is jacksonville and the password is training1; you must be logged into IRBNet to access the training and education tools.

Forms and Guidance

As you begin the IRB Process, we encourage you to take a look at the Forms Checklist.  This is meant only to be a tool to help you begin to understand which forms may be required for your submission, but is not necessarily exhaustive or all inclusive.  We encourage you to contact the IRB Administrator if you have specific questions about what all you need to include in your submission.

For your convenience, here are sample versions of many of the forms.  These are not meant to be used for your submission.  The most current versions of the forms are available in the Forms Library on IRBNet.
