Human Research

Covid-19

Wherever possible, research involving human participants should be conducted using online/remote research methods. Where this is not possible and face to face methods are proposed, the University expects researchers to carefully consider potential Covid-19 transmission risks and mitigating actions to protect researchers and participants. Researchers must complete the Covid-19 Face to Face Human Research Health and Safety Risk Assessment Checklist for review and approval by their Faculty, as well as submitting their project checklist and/or ethics review application to the Human Research Ethics Committee for review. Please refer to our Conducting Human Research during the Covid-19 Pandemic webpage for further guidance.
