Ethics and Research
All research at Dawson College involving human participants must be reviewed by the Research Ethics Board (REB). The REB, mandated by the Board of Governors, supports researchers in their mission to maintain ethical research conduct and instrumentation by ensuring that ethical guidelines are respected.
Research ethics review is required for all researchers (both Dawson researchers and researchers from other institutions) who wish to conduct research using human participants (students and/or staff) at Dawson College, and for Dawson researchers recruiting participants outside of the College. Please submit an application for ethics review to the REB well in advance of your project start date. Consult the REB homepage for submission deadlines and meeting dates.
Please see the policies below for details on conducing research involving humans.
