NIH Releases Protocol Template for Behavioral and
Social Sciences Research Involving Humans

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched a new protocol template to help behavioral and social science researchers prepare research protocols for human studies measuring social or behavioral outcomes.
The protocol template is an effective resource for communicating the science, methods, and operations of a clinical trial, to allow for efficient review by peers and oversight bodies, to facilitate reporting of information into ClinicalTrials.gov, and to guide replication of studies. Use of the template will also help ensure adherence to the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E6 Good Clinical Practice guidelines. 
Questions about the protocol template may be sent to the NIH Office of Science Policy at SciencePolicy@od.nih.gov.
