Research Ethics

Approval Forms

Please submit all forms to the Research Ethics Board Coordinator (Sue Funk, Suite 101, Fosmark Centre).  If you are unsure as to which form to use, please contact Sue at sue.funk@twu.ca or 604-513-2142.

Make sure you allow enough time for your application to be reviewed. For faculty research, thesis research and MA in Leadership projects, an average application that qualifies for expedited review (two reviewers) should take approximately four to six weeks (from when it is received by the Research Ethics Board) for the review process.  Applications required full Research Ethics Board review should take approximately six to eight weeks.  For small class projects, an average application should take three weeks (from when it is received by the Research Ethics Board) for the review process.  There may be additional time needed for all types of applications if modifications are required.  Most applications will require modifications.

Do not start research with human subjects (done directly or through analysis of existing data) until you have received an email from the Research Ethics Board stating that your project has been approved. This includes the recruitment of subjects.
