Research Ethics @ BU

Planning Ahead – A Reminder (Staff & PGRs)

If you’re hoping to start data collection activities at the beginning of September and are in the process of completing your research ethics checklist, please remember that during August there are NO Research Ethics Panel Meetings.  If you want to start your data collection activity in August/September, please submit your checklist in time for Panel meetings to be held in June or July.  Checklists (for ‘above minimal risk’ projects) received during August will be deferred until the Panels reconvene in September (dates to be advised).

Reviews for low risk projects (Staff and Postgraduate Research) will continue as normal during August.

More details about the review process and Panel meeting dates can be found on the Research Ethics Blog.  Email enquiries should be sent to
