Northwestern faculty just received an e-mail about changes to our IRB system that included:
The IRB must be informed of all income from seminars, lectures, teaching engagements, service on advisory committees or review panels sponsored by for-profit, public, or nonprofit entities other than NU. Formerly, the IRB only asked for income that came from the study sponsor or an outside entity whose interests would reasonably appear to be affected by the research.
If I’m reading this correctly, if you give a talk at such-and-such and get an honararium, or you serve on a grant panel and get the small recompense that comes along with that, you need to report all this to IRB, at least if you do work that includes human subjects. Is this the rule at other places?
