How do I clone a previous application?

If you need to create a new application that is significantly similar to a recent application you previously saved or submitted, you can clone the previous application to save time. Note: The application must be the same type (e.g. application for ethical review, secondary use of data, multi-jurisdictional review, etc.).

Here are the steps to clone an application:

  1. Find the application you would like to clone from the quicklinks on the IRIS home page.
  2. Select the Clone button (see Figure 1).
  3. Select which tabs you would like to clone (see Figure 2). The Common Questions tab contains the application-specific subtab and application questions, and in most cases should be selected (see Figure 2).
