CRC Research Request Form If you intend on conducting a research project during the academic year that will require recurrent use of the CRC's facilities and/or technologies, please complete this form in full as early as possible. Answer the questions to the best of your ability with the information you currently have. NOTE: Your completion of this form does not count as a formal reservation of any of the CRC's resources. Rather, it is a way for the CRC administrative staff to stay informed of the semester's upcoming studies, get a preliminary sense of which resources will be in demand in the coming months, and set up long-term data storage for those who require it. Any specific requests for CRC resources must always be submitted through QReserve. We strongly encourage you to submit your requests via QReserve as soon as you have a sense of your schedule. If there are any issues or conflicts with your reservation requests, the CRC Lab & Research Manager will contact you directly. Step-by-step QReserve instructions can be found in the CRC Resource Guide Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.Name* First Last BU Email Address:*You are a:*Faculty memberDoctoral studentMaster's studentUndergraduate studentWho is the faculty advisor associated with this project?*Please name the BU college with which you are affiliated:*Note: College of Communication students and faculty are able to use the CRC's resources free of charge; those in outside units are expected to pay a fee to use our facilities and technologies. Pricing is available upon request.Co-Researcher InformationPlease provide the following information for any co-researchers who will be using CRC facilities and/or technologies. Note: We will only be in touch with you and your co-researchers with pertinent information regarding CRC resources/reservations.First & Last NameBU Email Address Does your planned research require IRB approval?*At Boston University, certain research involving human subjects must be approved by the Charles River Campus Institutional Review Board (IRB). Refer to BU Research Support's guidelines to determine if your research project requires IRB approval. Yes No Please select the option below that best describes the status of your IRB application for this research:*My IRB application is not yet submitted/currently in progressMy IRB application has been submitted and is awaiting approvalMy IRB application has been submitted and approvedWhat is the number of your IRB-approved research study?*Which of the following data collection methods do you plan on using?Please select all that apply.

Note: The middle and end of the semester are often more crowded.*Enter approximate start date *Enter approximate end date Are you working against an imminent deadline (e.g., thesis, dissertation, grant, conference)?* Yes No Enter your approximate deadline for data collection below:* Use of iMotions ComputersWill your research study involve the use of an iMotions-enabled PC laptop?* Yes No Will you and/or your co-researchers require access to your iMotions files beyond the semester in which the data will be collected?*If so, the CRC Lab & Research Manager will: 1.) ask COM IT to provide you and any co-researchers with expanded Dropbox storage, and 2.) share a private Dropbox folder with you/your co-researchers. This folder will serve as a secondary, remote location to which you will be responsible for saving your exported iMotions study for storage beyond the current semester. Once saved to Dropbox, an iMotions study can be downloaded locally and re-uploaded to any iMotions-enabled laptop. Yes, I will require access to my iMotions study/associated files beyond the semester. No, I will not require access to my iMotions study/associated files beyond the semester. Data Storage PolicyIn order to keep our computers running properly, all locally-stored data will be routinely cleared from the CRC's desktop and laptop computers at the end of each semester. The CRC and COM IT are not responsible for any data stored on our computers that is lost, corrupted, or otherwise compromised, and we expect that you and/or your co-researchers will, throughout the lifespan of your project, regularly back up your research files to a secure, secondary location (i.e., an external hard drive or cloud-based server) in accordance with any IRB-imposed protocols.* I have read and agree to the policy above. Policies & ProtocolsAs one last step, we request that you and any co-researchers review the CRC Policies & Protocols before your study begins. This document details the policies, procedures, and standards we expect all students and faculty to follow when conducting research at the CRC.
