Human ethics

All research projects and teaching practicals involving human participants as subjects require ethical approval. Post-graduate research projects are included in this requirement. In student research the Chief Investigator must be a University staff member for purposes of risk management, insurance, and legal reasons.

The categories of research involving human participants that require ethics approval that are most relevant to the School of Information Technologies are:

questionnaires
surveys or interviews
telephone interviewing
recording by audio- or video-tape
