The primary purpose of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects involved in research activities being conducted under the authority of Jacksonville State University (JSU). The IRB committee reviews all JSU research involving human participants to assure that research is conducted in an ethical manner. This includes ensuring that risks to participants are minimized, the selection of participants is equitable, and participants are informed fully of what their involvement will entail.

More information about the IRB is available from the Division of Academic Affairs.
