We facilitate and provide administrative oversight for research and grant issues.
Conflict of Interest (COI) disclosures need to be done yearly for all faculty, and the Research & Graduate Studies Office facilitates the process. The univeristy's COI policy and required forms are available here.
The Research & Graduate Studies Office assists faculty, students and staff in obtaining the necessary approvals to ensure compliance with all federal, state and University regulations governing the responsible conduct of research.
Institutional Review Board (IRB): For research involving human subjects, please refer to the IRB Office for information regarding required investigator training and application forms. An electronic signature is required on the application for the main PI. (If the PI is a student, then the electronic signature of the advisor is also required.) Electronic signatures are created using your Okey credentials.
Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC): All animal research, teaching, research training, and testing must be approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). Please refer to the IACUC Office for information regarding required investigator training and application forms.
Oklahoma State University has a policy requiring degree-seeking graduate students, postdoctoral fellows/ associates, and undergraduate students who are engaged in research to receive appropriate, institutionally-endorsed education and training in the responsible conduct of research. For additional information on the university policy please refer to the university’s RCR website. In addition to the university policy, in recent years funding agencies (e.g., NSF, USDA-NIFA) have enacted new policies that require everyone conducting research to receive training in core areas of RCR. An online RCR training course (provided by CITI) is available to OSU faculty, students and staff.
Internal funds for research start-up are often provided for new College of Human Sciences faculty.

The Human Sciences Research & Graduate Studies Office facilitates payments to participants in human subjects research. Please refer to the Guide to Compensating Human Subject Research Participants for information regarding Human Sciences college procedures.
