At the University of Otago, research involving human participants requires ethical approval. The Department of Management maintains the highest standards in research. We follow a rigorous procedure to ensure that everyone adheres to this standard.
How to gain ethical approval
To help researchers understand the process for gaining ethical approval, we developed a chart illustrating the processes that must be followed.
View the chart outlining the process for gaining ethical approval in the Department of Management (PDF).
