Research Integrity and Compliance


Beginning June 4, 2018 researchers will use the new Kuali Protocols software system for submission of IRB and IACUC applications.
In order to migrate data from the current systems, no new applications will be accepted after Friday, May 18. All outstanding protocol revisions and updates will be due on Friday, May 25 at 12pm.
Note: If you have begun an application prior to May 18, it will not be saved and migrated to Kuali Protocols. You will be required to start a new protocol after June 4.
In-person training dates for the new system have been scheduled.

About Research Integrity and Compliance

Research Integrity and Compliance (RIC) is committed to the highest standards and quality. On behalf of the Associate Vice President for Research and Sponsored Programs we serve the Texas State research community by ensuring that all research and scholarship is conducted in an ethical and responsible manner.

All research activities at Texas State University are governed by a number of regulatory and compliance committees mandated by federal and state laws. Non-compliance can not only result in harsh penalties to the University, but also to the individual researcher.

It is the responsibility of all Texas State University faculty, researchers, staff, and students to be familiar with institutional policy as it relates to those areas of research requiring compliance with government regulations. It is the goal of RIC to foster an environment of compliance and provide effective support and training for Texas State researchers in the regulatory requirements for the conduct of scientific research. The RIC also supports the research community in promoting the Responsible Conduct of Research.
