Student Research - Responsibilities before Graduation
Before graduating students leave the university, it is important that the following research-related responsibilities are fulfilled:
For more information on custody of research data, please see Section C, 6: http://www.case.edu/president/facsen/frames/handbook/research_scholar.htm/.
- Any student-initiated institutional review board (IRB) protocol is required either to be turned over to the responsible investigator or closed out with the IRB.Keep in mind that in order to close a protocol, data must be deidentified. If identifiable data will be retained, the protocol must remain open and the faculty investigator is responsible for keeping the data and maintaining the security measures of it, as outlined in the approved IRB protocol.
- For student-related research that has been federally funded, faculty advisors and responsible/principal investigators must keep original data, and students may take copies, unless a formal written agreement is made that ensures immediate and complete access to the original data.
- Upon terminating the IRB protocol, the student must provide copies of the completed informed consent documents and any data collection instruments to the responsible investigator.
