AHSS Research Ethics

Anyone who is undertaking a research project, including student dissertations, needs to consider whether or not their research complies with ethics guidance. Please visit the main Anglia Ruskin research ethics page for all appropriate guidance and ethics forms.

If your projects involves any external organisation for which separate research ethics clearance is required (e.g. NHS, Social Services, Ministry of Justice), please contact the AHSS FREP (see contact details below). Ethics applications in AHSS are discussed at a departmental level by School Research Ethics Panels (SREPs) in the first instance. Please submit the checklist and/or full ethics application to your School Chair/Administrator. If you are based at one of our Associate Colleges, please send the checklist to the SREP of your relevant Anglia Ruskin department.

AHSS FREP dates for 2018-19:
19 November 2018
25 March 2019
05 June 2019

The AHSS SREP Chairs and Administrators are:

AHSS FREP Chair: Kofi Boakye; Administrator: Emily Downing

NB Please be aware of this if you begin any new research projects, as failure to do so may have severe repercussions for you personally and our university. You cannot be given retrospective ethics approval. If you supervise students you are deemed to be responsible for ensuring they have the correct level of approval.

Research Ethics training:

Undergraduate and postgraduate taught (MA)

All undergraduate and postgraduate taught (MA) students and their supervisors must complete a compulsory research ethics training online quiz. This includes students at our associate colleges. Staff at our associate colleges are also encouraged to complete the online training, as it will help them supporting their students with their ethics applications. The online training is specifically designed to assist people with our university’s ethics application procedure.

Academic staff and postgraduate research students

All staff need to complete research ethics training provided by RDCS: either a face-to-face session, or online through Epigeum. A list of university research and ethics training dates are available on the RDCS website. To book any of these please email from your Anglia Ruskin student email account.
