Humanities & Social Sciences Delegated Ethics Review Committee

Updated February 2022

The Humanities & Social Sciences Delegated Ethics Review Committee (DERC) reviews applications from Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. They meet usually every other Thursday and applications are due the Monday before the meeting.

After you have submitted your application online in ARIES, an email will be sent to you outlining what you need to do next. Expedited applications should be printed (with all supporting documents), signed by the researcher and supervisor of the project then sent as a single PDF to Human Ethics Officer or a hard copy delivered prior to the submission deadline. Applications will not be accepted without all of the required signatures. E1 applications can be submitted at any time as only the chair will review.
