3 30 IRB Process The IRBs that Stark studied nonetheless required protocol changes “to safeguard the investigator, the board itself, or the university from lawsuits or legal reprimand” (Stark 2006, p. 184). ” She commented, “I can imagine that if you’re someone accused of discrimination, you’re going to pursue this and sue the researcher” (227). Let’s unpack this. A company that routinely rejected minority job seekers could file a suit against the investigator, presumably for libel, but few firms would welcome the negative publicity that would follow.

Permission to Recruit but not to Begin. The modification would work as follows. Your IRB would review the protocol, conclude that it is too risky for many people, but recognize that some prospective subjects may weigh the risks and benefits differently from your committee. You would give the investigator permission to discuss the investigation with prospective subjects and obtain their consent, but not to begin the research. If the investigator finds no willing subjects, the protocol fails Rajczi’s test.
