AbstractIn this article the author evaluates the report "Research on Human Subjects: Academic Freedom and the Institutional Review Board," by Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure of the American Association of University Professors in the U.S. She argues on the report's premise that the institutional review board (IRB) regulation on human subjects research is a threat to academic freedom. The author also examines the concept of academic freedom.
