In regard to Temple University's responsibility for Dr. Jacobs' research, they initially did accept that they were responsible for it by opening an investigation on it, even though, in my opinion, it was for the purpose of trying to cover it up. It was only when I went to the OHRP, the government body that oversees the Temple university IRB, that Temple University then made the case that Dr. Jacobs was not conducting research, but was taking oral history, which is exempted from OHRP oversight. In my opinion, they did that to avoid being investigated by the OHRP over it. I personally think that Dr. Jacobs' work does meet the OHRP's definition of research. It is because of this that I am going to ask them to review their decision. I suppose time will tell how Dr. Jacobs' work is finally classified, and therefore what jurisdiction it comes under.
