Frequently Used Forms

Georgia Southern University Institutional Review Board (GS IRB) may grant reciprocal IRB approval to Principal Investigators when a research project involves multiple university campuses or when deemed appropriate to protect human participants.

Human subjects’ research involving two or more campuses may include research projects that recruit participants from multiple campuses, involve investigators from multiple campuses, or utilize resources from multiple campuses.

Reciprocal approvals are not granted on projects that qualify under any of the exempt categories.

Reciprocal Policy Use where GS faculty is not the PI and another IRB will hold primary approval or the Co-PIs are from other institutions and will rely on our approval.
