The Samuel J. Wood Library & C.V. Starr Biomedical Information Center is now conducting a six-month pilot project supporting researchers completing their IACUC proposals. Through September 30, 2022, library staff are available to assist researchers in ensuring their protocol ‘Experimental Plan’ is easily understandable by IACUC reviewers and that every section contains the relevant and appropriate information.
Please note that this service is designed to review the language and organization, not the science, of your protocol. Although we may comment on areas of concern, in particular regarding the presence or absence of relevant information for each section of the protocol, we are not a substitute for the scientific review that a mentor or colleague can provide.

How it works:
Review requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. We strongly encourage you to request this service and deliver your protocol at the earliest possible date to ensure the delivery of your review before any submission deadline. Librarians will not take responsibility for any missed deadlines or submission outside of the aforementioned timeline.
