Disapproval of Research

In 2011, AAHRPP added a new metric, the percent of research protocols reviewed and disapproved by the IRB. Nearly 63 percent of organizations reported that they did not disapprove any protocols in the past year. Twenty-four percent disapproved one percent or less of protocols and 13.2 percent disapproved two or more percent. The percent of research protocols disapproved at a majority of organizations is zero. The perception that IRBs disapprove a significant portion of research protocols submitted is not true.
