Human Research Forms
IRB Forms and Templates
Templates for a variety of forms you may need
when to support your IRB Application can be found in the IRBNet Forms and
Templates Library. These include:
Informed Consent templates
Minor and Child Assent templates
On-Line Survey Consent template
Foreign Language Translation Certification form
Additional Personnel Addendum template
Application for Continuing Review form
Human Subjects Research Determination form
Adverse Event Report forms
Other useful forms and information
Because these forms are frequently updated to
reflect regulatory and institutional requirements, only the current templates
from the IRBNet library should be used to create your IRB application
package. Please do not copy from
previously-used forms or other websites without first consulting the IRB
Accessing Forms and Templates in IRBNet

Click the “Forms and Templates” link at the left of the page.
Select the “Northern Arizona University IRB, Flagstaff, AZ–Documents for Researchers” from the “Select a Library” pull-down menu. The list of current, available forms will
Select the appropriate templates and forms.
You must have an active IRBNet account to access these forms. If you do not, refer to Step 3 in the instructions
for applying for IRB approval.
Amendments must be submitted to the IRB
whenever there are modifications to a research project that has already been
approved by the IRB. Some examples are
changes to a research protocol (such as changes to procedures or the study
population), extensions of the research timeframe, and the addition* or removal
of researchers. Changes to research
must not be implemented until they
have been approved by the IRB.
The Amendment form can be found in the IRBNet
Forms and Templates library. Amendments,
as well as any other changes to projects that have already been approved by the
IRB, should be submitted as a new package
in IRBNET under the already-approved, original project. (Do not
open a new project in IRBNet for this purpose.)
For Instructions for creating a new package in IRBNet, click the link to
the IRBNet Researcher Training Energizer2 materials under Step 3 of the instructions
for applying for IRB approval. Refer to the IRBNet
Researcher Training Energizer2 materialsbeginning at Slide 8.
* If you are adding
researchers to your project, submit a completed Amendment form (see above), as
well as an Additional Personnel Addendum.
List the names of the researchers you will be adding to the project in
the Amendment form, then complete the requested information for each researcher
in the Additional Personnel Addendum. If
you are adding multiple researchers, you may need to complete more than one
Addendum form. The Addendum form(s) must
accompany any Amendment adding researchers.
Continuing of Research
For research projects in the Expedited and
Full Board review categories, an Application for Continuing Review must be
submitted to the IRB for review 30 days prior to the expiration of your
project. The Application for Continuing
Review form can be found in the IRBNet Forms and Templates library. Please note that the Application for
Continuing Review is not a substitute for an Amendment. If you are also changing your research, an
Amendment form (see above) should be submitted along with the Application for
The IRB must be notified of any adverse events
occurring during research projects immediately, but no later than 24 hours of
the occurrence. Use the Adverse Event
Report form in the IRBNet library for this purpose. If you cannot access the form for any reason,
notify the IRB Office at 928-523-9551 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
