UIC Research Electronic Submission System

UIC Research - Submission System

UIC Research is the online system used by OPRS for protocol submission and review. All human research related submissions requiring review by the IRB/OPRS must be submitted via UIC Research.

The UIC Research electronic submission system can be accessed here: UIC Research.

UIC Research is protocol driven.  While a protocol document is required to be uploaded for every Initial Review:

  • There are no longer multiple applications and appendices to choose from and submit.
  • There is only one form to complete, therefore, you cannot complete the wrong form.
  • The duplicative questions and requests for information have been significantly reduced, if not removed.
  • Protocol templates are provided for investigators who do not have a sponsor protocol (located in the UIC Research IRB Library). The protocol template for Social, Behavioral, and Educational research was developed based on the Social, Behavioral, and Educational Sciences Initial Review Application previously used by OPRS. The information that is required is the same, just in a different format.
