I NTRODUCTION TO THE R ESEARCH R EVIEW A PPLICATION P ROCESS The majority of MSA students will use the MSA program’s research review application process. The exceptions to this policy are those cases where the student’s work involves human subjects and would be considered “research” under the federal guidelines. Projects which constitute “research” are those projects using human subjects that generate findings that can be generalized and that are intended from the outset of the project to be disseminated to a wider audience. For example, a student conducting a project and using human subjects with the intent to publish the findings or report the findings to a broader audience, i.e., state or regional, national or international conference or outside of the researcher’s organization, must complete CITI training and seek IRB approval.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
