What Is An Institutional Review Board?
This document on Institutional Review Board or IRB tells a lot about the role of such boards and the authority that they have. By going through these guidelines students can make sure that they are following all conditions stipulated by the IRB. The members of the IRB have power to postpone a project, or even reject it. In such circumstances, a letter is sent to the project committee stating the reasons for rejection. The main aspects that the IRB checks are whether the study eliminates unwanted risks, and if respondents or participants have given their consent to be a part of the research after being duly informed of the nature and objectives of study.
