Ethics: Research involving Humans

Applications From: Faculty / Graduate Students / Staff / Undergraduate Students (when your supervisor WILL be using your research data)

Research Ethics Board (REB) applications and modification requests from those outlined above are submitted using online forms in the ROMEO system. ROMEO allows you to track your application as it moves through review and provides access to all your approved files for future reference and submission of Annual Reports.

Applications From: Undergraduate Students (when your supervisor will NOT be using your research data)

REB applications from this group will be reviewed and approved by your department level research ethics committee (REC). To apply for such a review, use the MS-Word based “Request for Ethics Review Form” (found under ‘Forms’ on the left hand side of this webpage). Submit this application directly to your department REC; do NOT use the ROMEO online system.
