NIH Requests Feedback on Behavioral and Social Protocol Template

NIH Requests Feedback on Behavioral and Social Protocol Template

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requests input on a new optional template it has developed for NIH-funded scientists to use in writing protocols for behavioral science research.

This draft protocol template is connected to NIH’s new policy of defining basic behavioral or social science research as clinical trials, which APS opposes. Psychological scientists are encouraged to consider in their responses to NIH whether a separate template for behavioral research is even necessary.

If you are interested in submitting comments on NIH’s proposed behavioral and social science template, please view the comment form here and the accompanying NIH notice NOT-OD-18-167 here.

The deadline for responding is October 11, 2018.
