Covid-19

The risk of Covid-19 transmission in a face to face setting remains current. Researchers working with human participants should consider whether it may be possible and preferable to collect data using online/remote research methods, for example to mitigate risks to participants who are judged to be particularly vulnerable. Where it is judged that data collection using face to face methods is most appropriate, the University expects researchers to carefully consider potential Covid-19 transmission risks and mitigating actions to protect researchers and participants. Please refer to our Conducting Human Research during the Covid-19 Pandemic webpage for further guidance.
