Other Ethics Approval Procedures
Minimising Duplication of Ethical Review
If a research proposal has been approved by another organisation or University ethics committee and also involves SCU researchers, then this application is submitted to SCU as a formality and to receive an SCU ethics approval number. SCU must be aware of ALL research being conducted by SCU staff and students. There is a specific form for External Ethics approval and this is usually approved expeditiously. A copy of the external ethics approval and the application must be included.
