How to Participate
The publication also includes the Research Ethics Digest Self-Study Program. Read the articles in Research Ethics Digest and successfully complete one or both of the accompanying online quizzes with scores of 80% or higher to earn continuing education credits, which can be applied toward the Certified IRB Professional (CIP®) credential, Certified Professional in IACUC Administration (CPIA®) credential recertification, or other professional credentials.
By reading the articles included in Research Ethics Digest and successfully completing the online quiz with a score of 80% or higher, members earn continuing education (CE) credit hours (1.5 per issue for the human subjects protections quiz and 1 per issue for the animal care and use quiz). The quiz consists of 10-15 multiple-choice questions, and should take about 30 minutes to complete after the articles have been read. Members can take the quiz multiple times in order to receive a qualifying score, and have 90 days from the distribution of an issue of Research Ethics Digest to complete the quiz.
Once members complete the quiz, they will receive an email with their score and the number of CE credit hours they have earned. Participants who wish to apply the credit hours from the self-study program toward continuing education requirements for professional credentials they hold may submit the email to their accrediting body as documentation of their participation.
