FAQs

How do I access Artemis?
There are three ways to reach the Artemis portal:

  • Go directly to Artemis.
  • Go to the IACUC web page, which has a link to the Artemis portal in the navigation bar on the left.
  • Save the Artemis portal link as a “favorite” in your browser.
How do I login to Artemis?
  • Login to Artemis with your UGA MyID and password.
  • Once you are in the system, you will see your Submissions Pane page.
Do I need training to use Artemis?
No. Artemis is easy to use – it’s like filling out a form on the web.
How do I start a new animal use protocol (AUP) using Artemis?
  • 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.
Why don’t I see the all questions when I first start filling it out?
Some questions will reveal themselves to you, or not, depending on how you answer earlier questions. For instance, if you give a “no” response regarding conducting surgery, you will never see the detailed surgery questions. These are called “cascading questions.”
How do I amend my AUP to change the Principal Investigator?
  • 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 that you may need to change.
  • Then choose the ‘Save and Submit Form.’
What happened to my IACUC protocols from the previous electronic system (BIoware)?
Information from approved protocols in Bioware was automatically loaded into the Artemis system. If your AUP was created on a paper form (pre-Bioware), only basic information will be in the Artemis system.
Can I attach other documents to my Artemis protocol?
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 to support your protocol that cannot be conveyed as text.
How do I sign my completed protocol?
When you click the “SUBMIT” button, your digital signature is automatically added to the protocol for you.
How do I modify my approved Artemis protocol?
  • Login 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.
How do I submit an annual renewal for my approved Artemis protocol?
  • Login 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.
How do I create a draft for a new AUP as a third-year renewal and keep the information already in the Artemis system?
  • Once in the Artemis system, on the Submissions Pane Page, you will see your already approved protocols under ”Approved.”
  • Select “Copy to New Draft” to create the third-year renewal. The new AUP will be launched with any information that was already loaded in the Artemis system.
How can I send my draft to my Attending Veterinarian for review before submitting it?
  • Login to your Artemis portal using your UGA MyID and password.
  • Locate the protocol you want sent to the Attending Veterinarian under “Drafts.”
  • Select “View Form.” This will open your draft AUP, which you can then print.
How can I save my draft so I can complete it at a later time?
  • 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.
