Submitting a Continuing Review Report

Step 1

Complete the continuing review form. For protocols reviewed an approved on paper forms, the continuing review form in fillable PDF format can be found on the Forms & Templates page. For protocols reviewed and approved through the new online eProtocol system, the continuing review form is found online in the system.

Step 2

For paper forms, submit the completed continuing review report form and, if needed, any other supporting materials directly to the IRB for review at ORP@depaul.edu. For the online eProtocol forms, submit them through the system.

Step 3

If the IRB asks for revisions or additional information, prepare revised/additional materials and submit them to the IRB, along with a cover memo itemizing the changes/additions (for paper submissions) or online in the itemized comments in eProtocol and revise the online application as needed.

Step 4

Once you have appropriately addressed all of the IRBs concerns, the IRB will issue an approval memo, and you are authorized to continue your research past the current expiration date.‚Äč
