Conducting research to high ethical standards is of great importance to the student and the university. Having an Ethics Protocol is the way of ensuring such standards can be met. Researching with the use of an approved Ethics Protocol also affords protection to the student.
Many research degree candidates need advice to help complete an application for the approval of their Ethics Protocol. This book shows how to do this in a practical and effective way.
The book provides background on the issue of research ethics to help students and faculty have a greater understanding of the motivations behind the requirements to write an application to the Ethics Committee for the approval of an Ethics Protocol.
The process of ethics approval and the function of the Ethics Committee are addressed along with how to cope with amendments to an Ethics Protocol.
The book draws on the work of the authors who have had direct experience with Ethics Committees and helping students comply with the requirements.
