English term or phrase:expedited reviews
that seems to be sth that should be prepared by an investigator before publishing the results of his researches, for abstracts and other materials
Explanation: propozycja na podstawie definicji z różnych źródeł:
An expedited review does not relate to the speed at which a project is returned to the applicant. Instead, the term refers to the number of reviewers that are required to review a project. Expedited reviews are examined by one reviewer and the chair of the committee. Non-Expedited reviews are examined by all committee members.
Expedited review does not necessarily mean speedy approval, and is distinguished from priority reviews wherein the review (whether regular or expedited) is assigned a higher than normal priority for time-sensitive research. Rather, expedited reviews are reviews performed by a chair or experienced IRBMED member approved by a chair, according to their experience and service as an IRBMED Member.
The purpose of the expedited review procedure is to provide for appropriate reviews of relatively low-risk research projects while avoiding an excessive expenditure of effort or time. In practice, however, expedited reviews are not always any faster or more efficient than full IRB review. Several factors may contribute to the problem: One factor is that questions may arise about whether the proposed research activity is exempt or whether it is eligible for expedited review.
