The LSU Dissertations and Theses collections provide digital access and preservation of the full text of works submitted by LSU graduate students between 2001 and the present. Some works are embargoed at the request of the students. While presented for scholarly and research purposes, the works in this collection may not be re-purposed or exploited for commercial gain without permission of the authors.
The role of the LSU IRB is to facilitate research, protect research participants, and comply with all research regulations. Institutional review boards (IRBs) oversee research involving humans by health care, academic, governmental and other agencies and organizations.
