eReviews: An online submission system for research ethics review

What is eReviews?

eReviews is a Web-based platform that allows faculty and student researchers to submit ethics review requests to the Research Ethics Boards (REBs) and to store all of their projects’ ethics information in one convenient location.

Fill out REB forms, respond to REB feedback, view your application status at all times and track ethics approval dates in a few easy steps with this user-friendly tool.

Please note that as of May 1, 2018, all new applications must be submitted via eReviews — paper applications will no longer be accepted.

Supported browsers: Chrome and Firefox
