Specific research areas

For some research topics and participant groups, there are specific policies and guidelines that you should take into account when writing an ethics application. These pages are here to help you figure out what you need to do if you want to do research in one of these areas. 

Section 4 of the National Statement outlines some additional ethical considerations that apply to certain populations. If one of these chapters applies to you, please read it in full and make sure you consider these points when you are designing your research project.
