Research Ethics and the Approval Process
Wednesday 26 February 2020, 13:00-14:00
The session will begin by attempting to de-mystify research ethics. It is a commonly held misconception that research ethics requires considerable specialist knowledge (for example, of the kind moral philosophers have); this is not the case. As a consequence, the session will focus on practicalities by outlining the structures, policies, procedures, documentation and timescales about which it is important for those seeking ethical approval for their research to be familiar.
