Office of Research Ethics and Integrity
Any research project involving human participants, whether it is funded or not, must receive ethics approval from a Research Ethics Board (REB) prior to the start of the project.
It is the responsibility of the professor as researcher, as thesis supervisor and as lecturer to ascertain whether or not a project requires an ethical review. This may be done by consulting the Protocol officer for ethics in research.
Failure to seek ethical review and to comply with recommendations of the relevant Research Ethics Board may be deemed as a contravention of the article entitled "Professional Ethics" of the Collective Agreement between the University of Ottawa and the APUO.
