Human Research Ethics

The Ethics Team at UNE is committed to complying with the highest standard of ethics and research integrity. The University's Code of Conduct for Research outlines what is expected from everyone engaged in research at UNE with standards of responsible and ethical conduct.

Approval for research involving human participants is granted by the the Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC). The Committee uses guidelines set out in the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research.
