Application procedure

All research by RSM/ERIM researchers conducted at the Erasmus Behavioral Lab (EBL) requires approval by the RSM Internal Review Board, Section Experiments (RSM IRB-E). This procedure should help you proceed with this application. If you conduct research outside of the EBL, but need IRB approval as well, you will also need to follow the procedure below.

Step 1 in this procedure requires researchers to respond to the “Initial screening questions experiments”. If you answer all of these questions truthfully with “no”, the RSM IRB automatically grants permission to conduct this research. If you answer any of these questions with “yes”, you should fill out the application form for the IRB-E.

The RSM IRB-E has six members. After filling out the complete application form, two members of the RSM IRB-E will evaluate the research.

In addition to the broad VSNU criteria, your research will be evaluated in terms of the APA’s ethical principles and code of conduct and AOM’s code of ethics.

After submitting the application form, you will receive a letter with the response from the RSM IRB-E within two weeks in most cases.
