Use your WVU Login username and password to access WVU+kc (Kuali), the electronic research administration tool, used to submit human subject research protocols to the WVU Institutional Review Board for review. A protocol document is comprised of multiple tabbed pages where users can enter information about their human subject research, such as personnel and procedures. Each page features tabbed sections that can be expanded and collapsed independently in order to complete the required information.
Before you can create an IRB protocol in WVU+kc, you will need to be granted the
appropriate role to do so.
Submit a request to Information Technology Services (ITS) to request IRB
protocol creator access. Please allow one business day for your access request
to be processed.
Two-Factor Authentication with Duo
Duo is the name of the software WVU uses for authentication of your login to secure services. It provides a second layer of security in addition to your Login password. You can ensure extra security for your account by confirming your identity in two ways – with something you KNOW and something you HAVE. To learn how to enroll in two-factor authentication, set up your mobile phone, or purchase an authentication device, please visit twofactor.wvu.edu.
This training video explains how to submit a protocol, create and submit amendments/renewals, search for protocols, and other various functions of the IRB Protocol module of WVU+kc. The ORIC highly recommends that you watch this video prior to creating your first IRB protocol in WVU+kc.
