Working with Reviewer Notes
Reviewer notes are used by to request revisions to or ask questions about an application. Study teams must respond to reviewer notes in order to move the application forward in the IRB review process.
Study teams can respond to reviewer notes in two ways: 1) within the application or 2) via the Reviewer Notes tab in the main study workspace.
Within the Application
From the Reviewer Notes Tab
How do I edit my response to a reviewer note?
After you have responded to a reviewer note, you can edit your response by clicking on the Study Team Response Link for that reviewer note. This will open the note and allow you to edit your response. Please note that you cannot edit your responses to the reviewer notes after the application has been submitted back to the IRB office.
How do I send the application back to the IRB?
When you have finished responding to any reviewer notes, click “SUBMIT” under My Activities in the main study workspace to send the application to the IRB. After you click Submit, ARROW will automatically check if any reviewer notes may still require a response. If everything is complete, ARROW will send the application back to the IRB and the review process will continue.
