Exempt Review Committee (ERC)

Certain types of research activities may be exempt from IRB review. Exempt status is determined by the Exempt Review Committee. Any investigator who seeks exempt status must submit an application through IRBNet.

Institutional Account with Survey Monkey

Effective immediately, use of Marywood University's institutional account with Survey Monkey will no  longer be allowed for research involving human subjects (only research requiring review by the Institutional Review Board or Exempt Review Committee).  This is due to security issues and the protection of human subjects.

While you may still utilize Survey Monkey's service for research, you will need to subscribe to a secure, personal account.  Subscriptions at various levels are available and may last as long as the researcher desires.  The type of account allowed will depend upon the nature of the research.
