Decision Tool: Am I Doing Human Subjects Research?

The Office of Extramural Research (OER) has developed a quick decision tool that should assist you with determining if your research involves human subjects, may be considered exempt from Federal regulations, or is not considered human subjects research. This tool should not be used as the sole determination of exemption.

New Note: This tool uses the 2018 Revised Common Rule requirements. For more information, please visit OHRP’s page  Link to Non-U.S. Government Site - Click for Disclaimer  .
