Online Ethical Review Manager (ERM) is now live

(3 October 2016)

The University’s new online Ethical Review Manager (ERM) for processing University research ethics applications is now live.    

There will be a brief crossover period (until 1 November 2016) in which ethics applications submitted on the old application form via Ethics Signatories will still also be accepted. After this period, applications must be submitted through the new online Ethical Review Manager only.

This applies to researchers, and also staff in PSS and administrative roles, such as University Research Ethics Committee (UREC) Secretaries, Insurance Officers, Research Office Administrator, School Research Ethics Administrators and Super Administrators.  

Training guides and videos are available on the Research Ethics  and IT Training  websites.
