This chapter focuses on the documentation of the decision making process of institutional review boards (IRBs). It examines the ethics review of two studies and looks at decisions both as they took place over time and as these events were formally documented afterward. It suggests that these meetings portrayed the IRBs as unitary social actors who evaluated studies, and highlights the individual board members' successful attempts at consensus-building during board deliberations.

Keywords:   IRB meeting, decision making process, documentation, unitary social actors, consensus-building
