Ethics

All research involving human subjects within the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences must be approved by the AHSS Research Ethics Committee (REC). If your research will include human subjects in any way, you must complete the AHSS ethics application form and include any relevant supporting documentation in appendices. 

AHSS REC is audited on a regular basis by UL Research Ethics Governance & Faculty Research Ethics Committees (ULREG)
