Study Titles in IRBNet Should Include Study Acronym (STISISA)
Moving forward, all new studies with an acronym in their study title should plan on including said acronym in the study title as entered in the IRBNet system. If you have an existing study with an acronym that is not currently included in the title in IRBNet, please flag your next package for a title update. You can update the study title on the ‘Project Overview’ page in IRBNet. Click the yellow ‘Edit’ link at the top of the page to revise the study title.
The reason for this request is so that our data commitments coordinator can easily locate your study in the data commitments system and in the IRBNet (without you having to memorize your project number). If your study did not come up with a clever acronym that required awkward wording of your study objectives, first, shame on you; the world needs laughter. Second, no need to come up with an acronym just for this purpose. We’ll make do.
