Faculty Ethics procedures
Ethical review will normally be conducted at departmental level first. However all ESRC funded proposals (except PhD fellowships, which are devolved to departmental committees) will require review by the Faculty of Social Sciences & Law committee, and any others at the request of a departmental committee. Please consult with an Ethics Committee Member in the first instance.
The Faculty review process is undertaken electronically, in dialogue with the researcher(s) and in as constructive and facilitative way as possible. In straightforward cases the committee aims to complete the review within two weeks for expedited review and four to five weeks for full review. It may take longer if the committee needs to ask for further information.
