Use of New Media
Other issues to consider, if your project includes the use of new media:
- Describe applicable consent and assent proccesses, or provide an adequate justification for a waiver of consent or documentation of consent;
- Provide a clear description of what the unit of analysis is;
- Consider the expectation of privacy of subjects and participants using the new media.
For more information, please review the IRB office's guidelines on research involving technology and new media.
