The Nova Southeastern University Institutional Review Board an an electronic submission system called IRBManager™. This electronic submission system allows for a more efficient method to submit, review, and approve protocols.
If you completed your Initial Submission Form via the old paper format, those forms can be found on the 'IRB Forms & Templates' page of our website under the Miscellaneous Forms/Letters.
ATTENTION: No participants may be approached or any research activities begun (including obtaining data and conducting data analysis) until you have received official IRB approval along with an approval memo and documents. This includes pilot study activities.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not an NSU-dedicated system so your NSU email and password will not work with IRBManager. You must first create a new user account. Please follow the directions below in order to create your new user account for IRBManager.
PLEASE NOTE: All NSU students, faculty, and staff must use their official NSU email address when registering for IRBManager.
Before you start this xForm you must complete the required CITI training, information regarding this training can be found on the CITI Training webpage.

When you submit an amendment, you may be required to answer additional questions that were added to the New Protocol Submission xForm since your initial submission to comply with new Federal requirements.
