IRB Form Compatibility Issues
 
IRB forms on this page are compatible with Microsoft Word 2010 and newer on Windows and Microsoft Word 2016 for Mac. Some features (e.g., checkboxes) are not compatible with older versions of Microsoft Word or any version of Pages for Mac. The newest versions of Microsoft Word are available at no charge to UAB faculty, staff, and students through UAB IT. Contact UAB IT for more information on upgrading your software. If you are unable to upgrade to a compatible version of MS Word, you may simply place an "X" before the checkbox that corresponds to your answer in the form.
