A Note on Research Ethics Requirements

All faculty, staff and students who conduct human participant research and/or who use animals in research, teaching and testing need to have ethics approval from a University of Alberta ethics committee for their work before it starts. The REO website has comprehensive information on ethics requirements, processes and policies.

REO has developed a simple self-assessment tool (When Is Ethics Review Required) to help researchers understand when they need to get more advice from the Research Ethics Office. Ethics requirements change over time and REO will always have current and accurate information.

REO provides advice, consultation and training by email, telephone and in person to individuals, research groups, classes and seminars, staff orientations and department meetings. Please contact Research Ethics Office.
