Exempt Review Committee (ERC)

Certain types of research activities may be exempt from the regulations, but are not exempt from ethical review. Exemptions are determined by the Exempt Review Committee. Any investigator seeking an exemption must submit an ERC application through IRBNet.

Contact Carissa Dube at 570-348-6211, x. 2418 for questions you may have regarding your exempt review.

Institutional Account with Survey Monkey

Effective immediately, use of Marywood University's general, 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. Another approved site is REDCap.
