Human Participants Review Board

HPRB Policy and Procedure Manual

(effective June 16, 2009)

Page 3, Paragraph 5, Definition of Research

New language:

If the sole purpose of the activity is to teach research techniques or methodology and not to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge, it is not considered research. However, class projects that include vulnerable subjects or higher than minimal risk should be submitted for HPRB review, even if the activity is not intended to be generalizable.
