ARROW Duplication Question is Simplified
UW-Madison recently reduced the regulatory burden on campus researchers by simplifying the duplication section of ARROW.
Instead of answering five questions, researchers will respond to one, stating whether their proposed activity duplicates previous work. PIs no longer need to provide databases and keywords searched, date of last search, or a narrative describing their search results.
Investigators still need to remain aware of developments in their field to ensure that they are not unnecessarily duplicating previous work, but they no longer need to document these efforts in ARROW.
