Human Subjects Certification

5pt Extra Credit Assignment

In order to ever submit your work to a conference or journal, you need IRB approval prior to gathering any human subjects data. The UCSD IRB approves most HCI research as exempt. Exempt approval is a quick and lightweight processs.

To be certified as a researcher that can submit IRB, the first step is to pass the training tutorial. This is really useful information, and because we strongly encourage you to get certified even if you don't plan to publish your work, we'll provide extra credit to any students who send us their certitication. This UCSD IRB page describes how to do so.
The training modules are linked from the CITI site.
