The goal of the Researcher Handbook is to serve as a roadmap for researchers as they navigate the complex research environment at the University of Iowa. This guide provides instructions for getting started, applying for the appropriate approvals, and conducting research that is compliant with relevant government laws and regulations and UI policies and procedures.

Please reference the UI Policy Manual for a definitive statement of UI policy
