Humans Subjects Research - Institutional Review Board (IRB)

If you plan on pursuing research with human participants either through direct interaction (interviews, surveys, experimental interventions, etc.) or through the use of private records about individuals, approval need to be obtained by the IRB before the research begins. The IRB is a committee responsible for reviewing research proposals submitted by SJSU students, faculty, and staff that involve the use of human subjects.
