Training and Guidance
Join us at our monthly Research Ethics Drop-in Sessions to obtain personalised advice about your Ethics application.
For first-time applicants and for those needing a refresher, Human Ethics & ARIES training is offered online and through face to face sessions. The training covers everything you need to get started on your application, including guidance on addressing key ethical concerns in your application, the category (risk level) of your application, and how to use the University’s online applications system ARIES (ANU Research Information Enterprise System).
The Statistical Consulting Unit (SCU) can assist with both experimental design and data analysis. The Unit is staffed by experienced practising statisticians who maintain regular contact with other statisticians at the ANU, CSIRO and elsewhere. Consulting support is available, free of charge, to all ANU Honours research students, Higher Degree Research students (e.g. Masters, PhD) and staff.
The Human Ethics Office sends out email newsletters to researchers who are on an active protocol. The newsletters are sent out quarterly. They contain relevant, up-to-date information and upcoming dates for training, events and submission deadlines.
The Research Ethics Office occasionally hosts Seminars with leading speakers on Research Ethics and the application of Research Ethics in various research areas. Any resources arising from these events (such as recordings) are available on this page.
Research students and supervisors both have responsibilities when it comes to submitting a research ethics application. This page provides an overview of the responsibilities for research students and research supervisors and a handy checklist for where to begin.
