How to Submit an Application to the IRB using AxiomMentor

The entire IRB application and review process is conducted online through the IRB AxiomMentor website, with automatic notifications going to all students, faculty and staff involved with a specific application. The IRB board does not provide rush reviews, so be sure to allow sufficient time for processing of your application by submitting at least one month prior to the proposed start date of your research.

Logging into AxiomMentor

The AxiomMentor site uses Single Sign-on, so if you are already logged into MyUSF, you will be taken directly to the site without having to log in again. Once logged into the site, be sure to click on the "IRB" tab. More detailed instructions on how to log in can be found on the Logging into the AxiomMentor Site page. 

Entering a New Application

After logging into the AxiomMentor site, click on "My Applications" and then "Create New Application." All submissions will require you to download and complete the IRB Review of New Research application first. More detailed instructions can be found on the Instructions for Entering a New IRB Application page. 

Submitting Modifications and Renewals

If you need to make a modification to an existing approved application, download and complete the Modification Application and submit it through the Modifications tab within your protocol on the AxiomMentor site. Renewals are also completed by clicking on the Renewals tab within your protocol. More detailed instructions can be found on the How to Submit a Modification or Renewal page.
