EREVIEWS: The new online submission portal, eReviews, has now been launched with the School of Psychology, the School of Social Work, the Faculty of Education, Telfer School of Management, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Health Sciences.  All new ethics applications from researchers in these units should be submitted via eReviews.  Please contact the Ethics Office if you have not received prior communications to this effect or if you have any questions about the process.

Faculty of Medicine: Researchers working on a project in which students from the Faculty of Medicine will be recruited as participants must first obtain approval from the Faculty of Medicine to conduct the project.  This approval must be obtained before an ethics application can be submitted for review by the REB.  Please contact Dr. Melissa Forgie for further details.


As a tool to help researchers in completing their ethics applications, the REB Evaluation Checklist has been made available.
