The ethics committee gives binding advice on ethical issues in research. Using the checklist, researchers are to determine whether their research needs to be presented to the committee for an ethics review.
The committee does not review research conducted by students (BA and MA/MSc). The supervisor/instructor is responsible for assessing whether research conducted by students is ethically acceptable.
Grant applications will not be reviewed by the committee. Only research for which funding is available can be submitted to the committee (in the case of externally funded research, after the grant has been awarded).
This committee is part of a broader effort by the faculty to promote ethical research, for example by the support related to data management offered by the Information Management and Facilities department and the PhD course on Academic Integrity.
