Research Ethics Board
Ethics Review Flowchart
Method of Communication with the REB:
Initial Research Ethics Review
Questions and pre-submission review of draft work:
The Research Ethics Officer can review your draft work and identify potential difficulties that could be easily fixed before an application goes out for review to REB committee members (saving time!). Office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 12 pm. To book a time, applicants are asked to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drop off location options of new applications:
- Office of Research Ethics, Atrium Building, Room 202
- Faculty of Graduate Studies of Research Office, Atrium Building, Room 210
- Psychology Department Office, McNally Building South, Room 323
Note: For a Form 1 request, applicants are asked to drop off 4 copies of their package. For a Form 1 C request only 1 copy of the package is needed for the review process. Applications will be checked for completeness. Reviewers can only be provided with fully completed application packages.
Responding to the REB Chair's requests:
Applicants are asked to please "Reply all" when corresponding to the REB Chair to where the REB Chair's communication originated. This ensures that applicants are directly replying to the REB Chair (email@example.com) and copying the Research Ethics Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org), in order to avoid delays.
In case of student research, the faculty supervisor must submit the response to the REB. Requests arriving from students only, cannot be processed without the supervisory attest.
Continuing Research Ethics Review
Adverse event reporting, requests for a modification, annual renewal and completion of research are addressed to email@example.com, in order to avoid delays.
