Research Protocols


This template should be used by biomedical and social-behavioral researchers conducting research in which subjects are assigned to receive one or more interventions so that the researchers can evaluate their effects (e.g. clinical trials, CBT, Behavioral Modification studies, or randomized outcome studies).

This template should be used by social-behavioral and biomedical researchers to prepare a protocol document for any research involving various types of interactional or observational methodologies: observations, interviews, focus groups, surveys, program evaluations, quality of life or interactional research.

To be used for research that involves solely the retrospective review of records or charts.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) developed a clinical trial protocol template with instructional and example text for NIH-funded investigators to use when writing protocols for phase 2 and 3 clinical trials that require Investigational New Drug application (IND) or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) applications. This NIH Template may be submitted to the IRB instead of the applicable Rutgers IRB Protocol Template.
For use as applicable e.g. with multi-centered, or industry sponsored protocols, etc.
For use as a resource for investigators who wish to develop standard operating procedures in order to establish a research [tissue or data] bank, otherwise known as a repository. This SOP Template may be submitted to the IRB instead of the applicable Rutgers IRB Protocol Template.
