The video above is an online version of our regular face-to-face ARIES training session. It explains what you need to know when submitting your first human ethics application at ANU, arranged in three parts:
- 00:02 Part 1: Using the Ethics Website
- 07:35 Part 2: Information Sheets and Consent Forms
- 14:39 Part 3: Writing an ARIES application
Please watch the video prior to beginning your application. We also recommend you complete the online Privacy Awareness Training course available through Pulse.
Resources mentioned in the training video:
The Human Ethics ARIES Manual has quick outlines of the steps to create, edit and submit a protocol in ARIES. Please note that the manual only has basic instructions on a few common areas and is not a substitute for the training video.
PLEASE NOTE: In-person ARIES training is cancelled until further notice. Please watch the ARIES training video above before creating an ethics application. If you have further questions, you can email us
to request a Zoom or phone consultation.
Face-to-face training details
All researchers should complete basic ARIES training before beginning an application in ARIES. This can be achieved by watching the online recording above, or by attending a scheduled face-to-face session. Email registration is required for face-to-face sessions. In your email, please include your department and your ANU status (e.g. Postgraduate or Honours student, staff, etc) and your desired date from the list provided below.
Prior to taking part in one of these sessions, you will need to be registered as an ARIES user by completing a New User Form if you haven't already done so. Please note that it may take up to 48 hours to gain access to ARIES after submitting the New User Form. The ARIES User Guide may also assist in preparing your ethics application.
