Oral History Requirements
Most types of oral history projects are excluded from IRB oversight. However, the human participant interaction part of the project would still follow the cardinal principles of the "Common Rule" under which the IRB policies are written.
Due to the complexity of the projects, a separate review mechanism is being set up by the History Department in collaboration with the Office of Compliance. We will update once a clear policy has been enacted. In the meanwhile, please fee free to firstname.lastname@example.org for specific questions.
