Application Process for Research Ethics Clearance

1. Applications must be saved in Word (.doc) or PDF format only. 

2. Appendices (e.g. research tools, letters, consent, third party approval, etc) are to be saved  either with the application form or as a single combined Word (.doc) of PDF format wherever possible.  

 3. Applications and appendices are to be sent electronically by the Principal Investigator, or in the case of student research, submitted by the supervisor to the Research Ethics Coordinator (msvu.ca ) as attachments. 

4. Please remember to include DREB approval letters, Thesis committee approvals, etc. with the submission. 

5. Electronic copies will be sent to the reviewers, who in turn will respond via email to the Research Ethics Coordinator with their comments as is currently the practice. These comments will be sent to the researcher, or in the case of student researchers, to the supervisor for review, discussion and/or action. 

6. Revisions and clarifications should be made using track changes, using bold or in some way highlighting the changes in order to assist the reviewers in quickly locating requested revisions and clarifications. These are to be submitted as per point 3 outlined above.

7. When the reviewers have given research ethics clearance to proceed with the research, you will receive an electronic copy of the Research Ethics Clearance Certificate, signed by the UREB Chair. Research may not begin until you have received notification of clearance.
