Animal Use Protocols (Artemis)

Artemis is the electronic Animal Use Proposal Submission and Review web application used by the IACUC on the UGA campus.  It provides real-time access to information regarding review status, approval status and expiration dates.

Artemis users are automatically subscribed to the Artemis Users Listserv to receive timely notices concerning IACUC and IACUC policies, Artemis and system downtime.

If you’ve ever filled out a form on the web, you can use Artemis. However, the look and feel of Artemis is different than with the previous system. One difference is the use of cascading questions. Some questions will reveal themselves or not depending how you answer earlier questions. For instance, if you give a “no” response regarding conducting surgery, you will never see the detailed surgery questions. Nevertheless, if you have questions regarding use of the system, please contact the Office of Animal Care and Use at 706-542-5933.

After accessing the Artemis system, you will be on your Submissions Pane Page. Under “NEW FORM” you will see the option to Create New ‘New AUP Submission Form.’ This will open a new blank protocol for you.

After accessing the Artemis system, find the AUP in which you wish to change the investigator. Select ‘Copy to New Draft.’ This will launch the AUP. Change the PI and any other information within the AUP which you may need changed and then choose the ‘Save and Submit Form’.

The Office of Animal Care and Use is committed to making this transition as easy as possible for you. Information from currently approved protocols will be automatically loaded in the Artemis system. If your AUP was created on a paper form (pre-Bioware), only basic information will be in the Artemis system.

Currently you can only cut and paste text from other documents to the Artemis protocol. Contact the Office of Animal Care and Use if there is critical information that cannot be conveyed as text that you need submitted to support your protocol.

When you click the “SUBMIT” button, your digital signature is automatically added to the protocol for you.

Log-on to your Artemis portal using your UGA MyID and password. Locate the protocol you want to change on your Artemis Submission Pane Page under “Approved.” Choose the “Create Amendment” button and the system will open the amendment page.

Log-on to your Artemis portal using your UGA MyID and password. Locate the protocol you want to change on your Artemis Submission Pane Page under “Approved.” Choose the “Create Renewal” button and the system will open the renewal page.

Once in the Artemis system, on the Submissions Pane Page, you will see your already approved protocols under ”Approved.” You will select “Copy to New Draft” to create the third year renewal. The new AUP will be launched and will already contain any information which was already loaded in the Artemis system.

Log-on to your Artemis portal using your UGA MyID and password. Locate the protocol you want a copy of for the Attending Veterinarian under “Drafts.” Select “View Form,” this will open your draft AUP. You can then print the AUP from this page.

When you need to leave an AUP that is not yet complete, you can save the draft to complete at a later time by going to the end of the protocol and selecting “Save Draft.” When you are ready to return to the AUP to continue working, select “Modify Form” from the Submission Pane Page.
