An ethics review is required for any study involving:
- Human participants e.g. interviews, online surveys, observations, social media
- Use of datasets containing identifiable information (names, emails, social media profile names, etc., but could be e.g. job title) – even if you plan to anonymise the data
- Research that might have negative repercussions for any individuals or groups
*Please note that at the current time, due to COVID-19, all data collection should be conducted remotely/online wherever possible. Please see further details under the tab above*
Before you complete your ethics review, think about how you will handle informed consent (see the tab below)
All staff and students should now use the new online research ethics submission system. Full instructions and a link to the online system can be found here. If you have any trouble accessing the form please contact Lyn Grove.
