Policies, Procedures, Guidance, and Checklists

Persons conducting, supporting or reviewing research subject to Yale IRB approval should familiarize themselves with these policies, procedures and guidance. This section should be referenced regularly as policies, procedures and guidelines are revised to stay current with evolving issues and regulations related to human research.

Policy Changes:

To the Members of the Research Community:

On December 16, 2016, the Yale University IRBs fully converted to a new online protocol submission system called IRES IRB.  Current IRB policies, procedures and guidance documents do not reference the change to IRES IRB. References to Coeus and email submission procedures are therefore outdated.  Please be advised that the HRPP leadership will update affected IRB policies, procedures and guidance documents to reflect the change to the new electronic system.

Please contact the HRPP at hrpp@yale.edu if you have questions or require a specific statement regarding this issue.
