Introduction to Research Ethics at Oxford

26 Oct

The goals of the session are to understand:

  • why Oxford has an ethics review system for research projects involving human participants and personal data;
  • what research is reviewed by the Interdivisional Research Ethics Committee for the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH IDREC);
  • common ethical issues which arise in relation to University policy; and
  • how to write an application for ethical approval.

The session is suitable for graduate students (MA/MPhil and DPhil) and early career research staff.

Attendees are welcome to bring applications they intend to submit, and the last part of the session will be available for individual discussion.

Full details of the research and support available can also be found at

This course is given 2 or 3 times a year depending on demand.

The course will take place in the Colin Matthew Room (ground floor), Radcliffe Humanities Building, Woodstock Road, OX2 6GG
