Research vs. Non-Research

Welcome to VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System's Non-Research Determination Site. This site contains easily accessed forms; a visual to explain the initial and continuing review process; and VA requirements for publication.

The impetus for its inception is two-fold:

  • To provide a resource to those who need assistance in determining whether their project is on-research or research
  • To track major (those requiring manager/director permission) non-research projects

To begin the process to answer the question, "Is it research, or is it non-research?", start here:
