Historical Information

University researchers in the United States seeking to observe, survey, or interview people are required first to complete ethical training courses and submit their proposals to an institutional review board (IRB). Under current rules, IRBs have the power to demand modifications under the threat of the denial of funding, degrees, or promotion if their recommended modifications to scholars' proposals are not followed.
