Levon3 Posted November 2, 2017 Share Posted November 2, 2017 I'm trying to do a research project in partnership with a researcher at another institution. I submitted my IRB application and got it approved before my collaborator did. Mine is categorized as expedited but he just heard back that his is exempt. So under my IRB, participants must sign consent forms and mail them back, but under the other institution's, all they need to do is check yes on a survey. I called my IRB to try to find out how we can get these to be reconciled, and they basically said they don't care what the other institution does, that's how mine has to be done. It seems that if my collaborator moves ahead with consent via survey checkbox, I'll no longer be able to work on the project (which I designed). Does anyone else have experience partnering with researchers at other institutions? Do you have any advice for me? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
