REGISTERING YOUR STUDY

If you wish to recruit subjects through SONA, you’ll need to follow these steps to register your study on SONA:

  1. Contact Michelle Powers about getting a SONA account.

  2. Create your study on SONA. You will not be able to post time slots until Michelle approves it

  3. Michelle sends out a new T-point form each quarter. Download this form and fill it out

    • For the study name, use the exact study name you entered on SONA

    • Consult with Meghan on how many subjects will need to be run, appropriate compensation and other subject related matters

    • If you wish to offer subjects the option of T-points or cash, circle both on the form

  4. From Rapport, download the most recent version of your consent form, with the IRB stamp of approval on it

  5. Take both forms to Michelle (in the admin office) and ask her to approve your study

  6. Your study approval will last until the end of the quarter. If you need to renew it, repeat steps 2-5 with that quarter’s T-point form

In addition, if you’re running an fMRI experiment, you’ll need to follow these steps to register your experiment with DBIC:

  1. Ask Courtney Rogers for a DBIC new protocol application form and fill it out

  2. From Rapport, download:

    • the most recent version of your consent form, with the IRB stamp of approval on it

    • the most recent version of your study plan, with the IRB stamp of approval on it

  3. Send all three forms to Courtney, and she will give you a DBIC number and access to the DBIC calendar
