Researchers and students who wish to request NSLHA members' participation in research projects are asked to submit basic information regarding their research project, its protocol, any benefit to subjects, funding sources, and approval from an institutional review board (IRB). An IRB is the overseeing body charged with ensuring protection of human subjects in research.
The information provided will be submitted to NSLHA's President for review and determination of approval for posting. The sole purpose of posting subject recruitment notices is to inform members of NSLHA about ongoing research and to do so in a responsible manner. Any decision of NSLHA members to participate will be based on their contact with the researchers themselves; the posting of the information on the NSLHA website does not constitute endorsement by NSLHA, or its Board of Directors. Research requests will not be sent out via email. Members may visit the NSLHA website for information about research requests.
