Ethics clearance

Human ethics clearance is required for all research that involves human participants such as in the use of questionnaires or interviews.  Further information can be found in the following links:

Human ethics application information and training sessions are run regularly by ANU for staff and research students. Session and registration details can be found via this link: ARIES Human Ethics training sessions. Prior to taking part in one of these sessions, you will need to be registered as an ARIES user by completing a New User Form if you haven't already done so. The ARIES User Quick Guide may also assist in preparing your ethics application.

For submission process enquiries please contact the Ethics Office ph 612 53427 directly.

Please note ethics clearances are also required by the College for all College Research Committee support schemes, such as the Research School Grants (RSGs), Editing Contribution Scheme and Publication Reward Scheme, if the research uses data that involve human participants.

An annual ethics information workshop is run by the College each year, usually around April, and is open to our all academic research staff and research students. Further information can be found on our Research skills workshops page.

ANU ethics confirmation for external ethics clearances and data bases may be required if the research is being completed by an overseas university or has been collected by another external group into a data set. If an application for an Ethics Clearance Confirmation may need to be submitted, please check with the Ethics Office ph 612 53427.

If it is a shared grant with data collection; the lead investigator's university will need to obtain ethics clearance from their university in the first instance, then the other investigator's will all require Ethics Clearance Confirmation from their own universities.

Research Integrity Advisors are appointed at each College. While they don't review applications, they are there to provide advice about the responsible conduct of research and the University processes for dealing with allegations of research misconduct. They give potential complainants information on the appropriate way forward with an integrity issue in the context of ANU policy and procedures. Our College’s Research Integrity Advisor (RIA) is A/Prof Mark Wilson. Further information on his role can be found here.
