DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT APPROVAL FOR RESEARCH USING HUMAN SUBJECTS At the University of Maryland, all research using human subjects must be approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to the start of the research project. This process is necessary in order to protect the rights of human participants and to ensure that researchers follow ethical guidelines. Research conducted in undergraduate classes for the purposes of instruction is exempt from IRB approval, but ONLY if the following guidelines are followed: Research projects conducted for course requirements must NOT: 1, Be published (e.g., on- or off-campus news publications, professional journals, etc.) 2. Be presented outside of class (eg., at campus-wide colloquiums, professional conferences, etc.) 3. Be disseminated in any other manner (e.g., web sites, email, phone conferences, etc.) If the researcher intends to publish, present, or otherwise disseminate the research results as outlined above, IRB approval is absolutely necessary. Failure to obtain IRB approval under these circumstances is taken very seriously by the University. 4 hia hi ttl. ‘Ann Battle, Ph.D. ‘Academic Programs Associate Director, Institute for Child Study Department of Human Development MAR 15 '@1 @4:31PM PRESIDENT LEGAL “uMCP P.2 College of Education t of Human Development Informed Consent and Release for Adults In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Research conducted by the Department of Human Development (hereinafter the “Department”) offered by the University of Maryland, College Park's College of Education (hereinafter the “University”), I voluntarily agree to indemnify, release and hold harmless the State of Maryland, the University and its officers, agents, employees and volunteers from any and all costs, liabilities, expenses, claims, compensation, demands, causes of action on account of any loss or personal injury to me that might result from my participation in the Research, whether arising through my own negligence, omission, default or that of the University.
