New England IRB now offers our clients dynamic, PDF-based submission forms- what we refer to as Smart Forms.
These new Smart Forms are available to submit initial reviews, make changes in research, and promptly report information. They are also available for continuing review and for study closure information
You may also send your submission forms to New England IRB via:
US Mail/ New England IRB
197 First Avenue, Suite 250
Needham, MA 02494
Please note the following about our improved forms:
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 Acrobat reader for free, please visit: https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
Because these smart forms are dynamic and 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.
