Psychology Research Ethics Committee

The Psychology Research Ethics Committee considers applications for ethical approval for research conducted within the Institute of Psychology. All studies and experiments conducted in psychology first must obtain ethical approval in order to protect participants' interests.

Procedure

1) Not all research can be evaluated by the Psychology Research Ethics Committee (in Dutch: CEP). Research with human subjects must undergo a medical ethical review if it falls under the Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act (in Dutch: WMO) and be submitted to the METC-LDD of the LUMC or another Medical Ethics Committee. See Guidelines and WMO website. This type of study has to be registered via the research website used for CEP applications, but not submitted in full to the CEP. If the METC-LDD gives out a non-WMO statement, the full proposal should be submitted to the CEP

2) For research falling under the reach of the CEP, please submit an application via the research website. Applications must be submitted by the responsible senior researcher (Professor, UHD, UD, Post-doc).

3) The CEP reviews all research proposals as soon as possible but no later than four weeks. Bachelor project studies will be reviewed within 2 weeks.

4) Your study can start only after approval from the CEP has been obtained. Please take this into account when an application is submitted.

5) Guideline for local sub-proposals from outside the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences: If a study is part of a multi-site study which has already been approved by another (inter)national ethics committee, the sub-proposal together with the approval should still be submitted to the CEP and will be subject to a light assessment. Contact details for the local Leiden contact for the study should be supplied.

Complaint procedure

In case of complaints regarding any aspect of being included or excluded in a study that has been reviewed by the CEP, and the complaint cannot be discussed with the principal investigator, participants can contact the chairs of the CEP: Henriët van Middendorp and/or Lotte van Dillen at ethiekpsychologie@fsw.leidenuniv.nl

Questions or complaints about privacy issues can be sent to privacy@bb.leidenuniv.nl
Complaints about WMO studies that are conducted in an FSW location can be sent to: Complaintsofficer-Psychology@fsw.leidenuniv.nl
