The Open Exhibits IRB application is officially under review at the University of New Mexico Human Research Protections Office! As soon as the research is officially approved, we can start collecting data.
The research plan was submitted for Expedited New Study review, so if all goes well we should be able to collect data in a few weeks.
IRBs are committees established under federal law to ensure the ethical treatment of human research subjects (http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/).
