Ethical approval for research conducted within the Department

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).
