Thesis/Dissertation Research Approval

Thesis/Dissertation Research

*Note: All thesis and dissertation projects, regardless of topic or focus, must include in the Appendix an approval letter from the Marshall University Institutional Review Board. This rule applies to all research projects including those that do not involve humans or animals.

The Marshall University Office of Research Integrity currently provides support for both Medical (IRB#1) and Behavioral and Social Sciences (IRB#2) Institutional Review Boards. The office supports the institutional Animal Care and Use Committee and the Conflict of Interest in Research Committee.

The MU-ORI also educates Marshall students and employees regarding research misconduct regulations.
