University psychology departments conduct innumerable research studies annually and rely heavily on departmental subject pools for their experiments. How are the rights and welfare of those subjects protected? How can universities improve their administrative practices so that their research programs are successful and ethically run? This volume reviews empirical evidence on the structure and functioning of departmental subject pools nationwide and of the institutional review boards that oversee them. The case studies and practical lessons offered by this book will be an important new resource for researchers and university administrators interested in the welfare of human subjects.
