Human Research Ethics Guidelines

We strive for a rigorous but also transparent, consistent and predictable Human Research Ethics Review Process.

These guidelines are designed to assist you to understand:

  • the Deakin ethics process;
  • the ethical principles that underpin this process;
  • your obligations as a Deakin researcher; and
  • how to design and conduct an ethically sound project that meets all of the relevant requirements.

The guidelines have been divided into five broad sections, each with multiple subsections.

You can navigate the guidelines using the links below or use the index button to search for a specific subject.

If you are new to the ethics process, you may find the quickstart tool a great place to start.
