Yes, GoMRI follows the National Science Foundation's policy (and federal law) regarding human subject use ( GRIIDC will not handle and archive human subject research data or data requiring Institutional Review Board (IRB) certification. All data requiring such certification will remain in the possession of and be managed by the IRB-certified researcher. However, these data will be recorded in the Data Source Registry (DSR). For more information about GRIIDC data policies, please see the GRIIDC Data Management Plan, posted under "Design and Management," on the GoMRI Data Management Web site (
