Specialist research ethics guidance papers

The UREC has worked with experienced researchers, from within and outside the University, to develop a range of Specialist Research Ethics Guidance Papers. These papers complement the University's Ethics Policy Governing Research Involving Human Participants, Personal Data and Human Tissue and aim to provide researchers within additional guidance on key subject areas.

A number of other Specialist Research Ethics Guidance Papers will be added shortly.

The following Specialist Research Ethics Guidance Papers are available to download:
