This page contains links to all New England IRB forms. All forms are copyright protected, and are in either Word or fillable PDF format.* This enables you to save the completed form on your computer before uploading it into MyConnexusTM. You may also send it to us via email, fax or U.S. mail.
Many of New England’s Word-format submission forms are now retired and replaced with dynamic, PDF-based submission forms!
New pdf-based smart forms are now available below for sending initial reviews, changes in research, promptly reportable information, continuing review, 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 2016 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 December 1, 2016.
To download the new Smart Forms, right-click the link and select ‘Save Target As’ or ‘Save Link As’ and navigate to the destination folder to open the form.
