Workshop Summary 

 

In July 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking on how current regulations for protecting research participants under Title 45, Part 46 in the Code of Federal Regulations (“the Common Rule”) could be modernized and revised.

This report from the Board on Behavioral, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences is based on a workshop that explored the implications of these proposed revisions and alternative approaches for protecting human participants while at the same time advancing behavioral and social sciences. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions that took place at the workshop among experts from a range of social and behavioral science disciplines.

This workshop was sponsored by: National Science Foundation, American Academy of Political and Social Science, American Economic Association, American Sociological Association, National Opinion Research Center, Population Association of America, Russell Sage Foundation, University of Michigan Institute for Social Research, and Westat.
