Hello,

  • What portions of the hub have been meaningful and helpful to your growth as a scholar?  Answers are there to questions about research. Recently I went there for COR, IRB, type of  research information, schedules, and research groups.
  • Why may someone not decide to visit our Research Hub? Time or thoughts about self study.
  • How do you view the Research Hub as a place to gather and apply information that helps you to further engage in research and scholarship? Knowing the researchers and scholars is an attribute that helps me show up and apply information. A sense of peer support helps me want to contribute to teams or individuals.
  • What frustrates you about the Research Hub? Lack of updated information or data that is inaccurate.
  • What do you value about our Research Hub? Research is well-defined usually and researchers attend who can help me learn. 

Best wishes,

Mimi

Hi Mimi,

Thank you for jumping right in and sharing some of your thougths and experiences. I enjoyed learning about the sense of peer support that you gain which helps you to want to contribute to teams. I feel the same way. I have been a part of several research teams and I want make sure that I am there to contribute to the team and provide support. I always enjoy learning from others and try to join teams that may have a person that has a relative strength in an area of weakness for me. Have you been on any research teams?

Regards,

David

Hi David,

I am looking for the slide templates that use the name of UoP on each slide so our team can present at a conference and also publicize UoP.  Those slides were available to students and faculty at one time. I remember getting that packet of templates recently but cannot find it now. Can you send?  Hope your Holiday was wonderful.

Best wishes,

Mimi

Hello. I am new to the research hub, and extremely excited about learning more about post-doctoral research and publishing.  I have a question about the role of IRB post-dissertation.  If I want to conduct a research study post-dissertation, am I required to gain approval through IRB in advance of completion of the study?

HI Deborah. Not sure if anyone reached out to you offline, but I wanted to offer an answer to your question. Overall, it is important to have IRB approvals when conducting ethically sound research, especially human subjects research, as you know. If you are affiliated with an organziation which can offer IRB services, then I definitelly recommend going through IRB. There are also some independent organizations which may review your study and offer IRB approvals. Note than IRBs must have designation from the govt as a review body. Additionally, many journals and conferences now also ask if a study has been reviewed, and some will not publish studies which have not been reviewed. So, if you are planning on publishing or presenting, IRB approval is also important. If, however, you are conducting a study of an already existing data set, or your study does not include human (or animal) subjects, and would normally be exepmpt status from an IRB, AND you do not have access to an IRB, then I have seen in these cases independent (non-institution affiliated) researchers conduct their research and get it published/presented. Best bet, though, is to always try to go through an IRB and have the official stamp of approval.
