Business and Law Procedures
All students and staff who wish to undertake research activities will need to apply for ethical approval before commencing their research. The appropriate ethical approval form must be used.
All forms must be signed by the researcher and (in the case of students) a supervisor.
The application should be accompanied by the relevant documentation that will allow an independent assessor to understand the nature of the project and the possible ethical issues.
