Research Ethics

KSB requires that all research involving data or material relating to human subjects which is not lawfully in the public domain is subject to formal ethical review. 

In the case of students, it covers research undertaken by a student currently registered for a degree within the faculty as a recognized part of his or her degree programme. Ethical issues in respect of such matters continue to be dealt with through University and College of Arts and Social Sciences Ethics Committees.

In respect of non-student research, the University policy of review of non-clinical research applies to individuals carrying out research for the University including all University employees, irrespective of whether their current place of work is within or outside University premises and all visiting researchers of the University irrespective of whether they are employed by the University, including persons with honorary positions, conducting research within, or on behalf of, the University.
