Many of WIRB's Word- format submission forms are now retired and replaced with dynamic, PDF-based submission forms!
Pdf-based smart forms are now available below for sending initial reviews, changes in research, promptly reportable information, and study closure information.
Please note the following about our improved forms:
- The smart forms must be completed using either Adobe's free Reader or Adobe Acrobat (version 9.1 or newer). Use of a program other than Adobe (version 9.1 or newer) to view or complete the forms will result in missing questions and non-functional fields. To download Adobe Reader for free, please visit https://get.adobe.com/reader/. (If you do not have access to Adobe's Reader or Acrobat, you may continue to submit the Word-format forms. In the near future we will be making available an html5 [online] version of the forms that do not require Adobe software.)
- Because these smart forms are dynamic (change based on your responses), they must be completed electronically; therefore, you cannot print them out and complete them on paper. However, at any time during their completion, you can edit, save, print, or share with your colleagues.
- We will continue to accept the old forms until further notice.
- The new forms have been adopted by WIRB, NEIRB, and CGIRB .
A brief orientation and tutorial on the forms is available here: http://www.cgirb.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/WCG-SMART-Forms-Training-Guide.pdf
The forms provide WIRB with all the required IRB review information required. Please provide a submission form with each protocol you submit for review.
