Submit study materials as Microsoft Word documents whenever possible. Study materials include consent documents, recruitment materials, data collection instruments, etc.
iMedRIS includes an internal document comparison tool that helps the IRB to review document changes more efficiently, reducing the review turnaround time of your IRB submissions. Researchers can also utilize this tool prior to submitting document changes (whether in response to an IRB request for changes or a researcher’s amendment request) ensuring all desired changes have been made and reducing the likelihood of additional rounds of review.
Note: This comparison tool does not work with PDFs, so upload Word documents whenever possible.
