IRB Application Instructions - Subject Population, Subject Compensation

Help Information

  • Payment may be provided to subjects; however, it should be limited to nominal amounts (e.g. reimbursement for out of pocket expenses and time) and should never be so high to constitute an undue influence to participate in the research; payment must comply with all other laws (e.g. tax reporting)

  • See HRPP Manual 6-5, Selection of Subjects and Recruitment for requirements and the IRB evaluation criteria
