The main purpose of the Department's ethics review procedure is to facilitate the research undertaken by members of the department, both staff and students, in a way that protects both our research participants and ourselves. Our aim is to accommodate all proposed research as far as is ethically possible. Our procedures and use of the online application form comply with the University of Sheffield ethics policy for research involving human participants, data and tissue.
The department expects all research to abide by the University ethics policy.
The University has introduced a new online application form and all applicants (undergraduates, postgraduates and staff) should use this online form more information is available on our ethics review procedure webpage.
