Human Research Review Board

The Human Research Review Board (HRRB) reviews all human subjects research at Elmira College (EC). HRRB approval is required if the data collected or the data analysis will be shared publicly, for example, through a journal publication or conference presentation. HRRB approval is needed even if the analysis will contain no identifiable information about participants in the study. A HRRB application must be submitted and approved by the HRRB before data collection begins if the researchers know the results will be publicly shared. Faculty and staff do not have to submit a HRRB application when they are collecting data from students and instructors for internal institutional purposes. For example, HRRB approval is not required to collect data for accreditation or program-improving purposes.

The HRRB is composed mainly of EC faculty and meets monthly to review research proposals. The HRRB reviews full board research and expedited research. When a study is approved, an approval letter is sent to the primary investigator (PI) by email. Studies deemed to be greater than minimal risk (aka Full Board) are typically approved for a one-year period. PIs wishing to continue research beyond their one-year approval time period must submit a continuing review. Studies deemed to be minimal risk (aka expedited) are typically approved for a two-year period. A continuing review is not required for the studies deemed to be minimal risk. The HRRB must approve any changes or modifications (formerly amendments) to an approved study before the researcher implements such changes for research determined to be full board or expedited.
