The Human Research Protection Program partnered with the OSU Writing Center to further simplify and improve the sample language for consent documents used in research with human subjects. The new templates and updated guidance are now available on the 'Resources for the Consent and Assent Process' page.

Because the guidance and templates also reflect upcoming changes in the federal regulations, please access these templates for all new studies rather than relying on previously approved consent documents from earlier studies. We look forward to helping you navigate these new resources and encourage you to schedule a meeting with us as you prepare to submit a new application.
