GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCTING RESEARCH WITH SIP

Before posting recruitment information on the SIP Listserv, the request must be reviewed and approved by the Presidential Trio. To submit a request, we need the following (and only the following) information, submitted as *a single email, with proper attachments:

  • Name of Investigator

  • Name of Supervising Faculty Researcher (if student research)

  • Project Title

  • Confirmation of Study Approval from Controlling IRB(s) (also please list the relevant IRBs and approval dates in the body of the email)

  •  Attachment of IRB approval letter(s) (including from participating Tribal Nations)

  • Consent Form(s)

  • Write-up of exact study participation invitation to be sent to SIP members for recruitment purposes


(Please NOTE, for example, that we do NOT wish to receive IRB application forms, just the materials we indicate above.)

MOREOVER, the originating email should come from a current SIP member who is willing to be accountable to the SIP community for the research recruitment and participation. For new SIP members with whom we are unfamiliar, it may also make sense that we receive a supporting email from an established SIP member who can vouch for the investigator(s).

Once the Presidential Trio receives this info, we will confirm the membership status of the investigator(s), and review the materials to determine whether recruitment of SIP members is appropriate.

Please submit your email request to SIP President Joseph P. Gone at jgone@g.harvard.edu
