Important Instructions

(updated 3/8/2011)

CPHS/OPHS has transitioned from a paper-based process to a web-based system called Berkeley eProtocol. To access the system, click on the Berkeley eProtocol icon at the bottom of this page and log in with your CalNet ID and passphrase.

Note: Before you start, please read the FAQs page for important information about eProtocol, and consult the Types of Review page for information about submissions and review processes. Questions? Call OPHS at (510) 642-7461.

Berkeley eProtocol - Sample Forms

In eProtocol, there are four choices of forms for a new application to conduct research with human subjects. As a tool to allow investigators to see the questions in the Protocol Information section (the main section of each form) and to work on addressing these questions offline, we have created the sample forms below.

These documents are not complete application forms as they are missing several sections (Personnel Information, Vulnerable Subject Checklist, Study Sites, Funding, and Assurance) and they will NOT be accepted in place of an online submission.

If you are unsure about which form to use, see Types of Review for information about New Exempt and New Non-Exempt submissions and/or contact OPHS for assistance.
