Research Ethics

Research Ethics

The School is committed to ensuring that all research undertaken by both staff and students is carried out to the highest standard of integrity. Under the University’s Ethics approval requirements all research involving human subjects must receive approval from the School Research Ethics Committee. Terms of reference for this Committee are available here. Further guidance is available from the Research Policy Office.

The University has detailed regulations and guidelines on research involving human participants in the Queen’s University Research Governance documentation. The Sample Consent Form provides guidance on good ethical practice in the conduct of academic research. Research requiring access to Health or Social Services stakeholders must be submitted via ORECNI.

Further information and student forms can be found on student SharePoint.
