JCURA Research Ethics and Approval Workshop

JCURA - Jamie Cassels Undergraduate Research Awards

If your JCURA research project involves collecting data from human participants (interviews, surveys, observations, etc.), using or collecting human biological materials (blood, urine, cell lines, etc.) or accessing existing data sets or reports that are protected (e.g., patient files, government data sets, etc.) your research must be reviewed and approved by the UVic Human Research Ethics Board (UVIC Research Policy 1250) BEFORE you commence research activities. The ethical review process cannot be conducted after you have collected data. Your supervisor is responsible for ensuring that you are appropriately mentored on this process.

These two sessions are identical so it is only necessary to attend one session but you are welcome to attend both.

The ethics workshop will cover the basics for student researchers including what studies require research ethics review and approval, and what to do if you and your supervisor are unsure whether your project requires research ethics clearance. We encourage you to visit the university’s Human Research Ethics website at https://www.uvic.ca/research/conduct/home/regapproval/humanethics/index.php to access application forms, application guidelines, and additional resources. Knowing about research ethics is crucial to any budding researcher's career. Even if your JCURA project would not require ethical approval, you may find the workshop helpful.
