Research Ethics

People doing business around the table

The University of New Brunswick has given the Research Ethics Boards (REBs) on both campuses the responsibility of ensuring compliance with Tri-Council and UNB policies for all research projects at UNB that involve collecting data from humans. At the same time, the REBs strive to ensure that such compliance protects the principles of academic freedom and high scholarship.

Ethics forms

Please note: To access all VPR forms, policies and guidelines, please go to the UNB Policy Repository and filter by "Office of Research Services" in the "Department" field (unless otherwise indicated below). You may then use the alphabetical listing to find the applicable document.

Policies and procedures

All research proposals, whether new or renewals, that involve human participants must be approved by the REB of the applicable campus. The following links include information, forms, and guidelines in this area:
