SSIS Research Ethics Committee Members 2017/18

Departmental Representatives:

Staff and Post Graduate Student projects involving interviews, questionnaires or observation of people need to be submitted for an ethical review to the Ethics Committee. The documents on this page aim to guide you through the process of preparing an ethics proposal.

You should read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and Ethics Application Guidance before submitting your proposal. If you require further advice please contact your supervisor or departmental representative.

Ethics approval can be a lengthy process (3 – 6 months) so please pay close attention to the meeting dates and deadlines. Applications will not be considered outside the meeting schedule other than in exceptional circumstances (see interim applications below).

Deadlines for applications to, and dates of, the SSIS Ethics Committee meetings can be found in the table above. Queries regarding the content of your application should be directed to your Departmental representative (above).

Students should seek advice and support from their supervisors prior to submission. Student applications MUST be read and approved by their supervisor prior to submission and an email confirming this must be included with the submission.

Once complete, please email your application to the following:
