If you have not submitted in eProtocol before or if you have students interested in a research project, it is important to get them familiar with what will be expected prior to beginning in the eProtocol system. Below are links to the 3 main categories of protocol applications that you can initiate within eProtocol.  They link to Word documents which contain the majority of questions and fields you will need to fill out in the process of submitting a protocol through the eProtocol system. 

Extracted eProtocol Questions

Full/Expedited eProtocol
Exempt eProtocol Questions
Not Human Subject Questions


  • Be sure to initially pick the type of application you are submitting correctly, i.e. Exempt, or full board review, if not chosen correctly, the only way to un-do it is to generate a completely new protocol.

Helpful hints for when you submit a protocol…

  • Anticipate the IRB questioning parts of your submitted document.  It will, more than likely, be returned with questions and areas needing clarity.  This may happen a few times until all of their questions and concerns are completely addressed.
  • You may have to repeat information throughout your eProtocol submission.  The questions should be viewed as independent items instead of the mind-set that you are submitting a document as a whole.
