Oxford Brookes University is committed to rigorous ethics standards in all research undertaken by staff and students.
The University Research Ethics Committee (UREC) has specific responsibility for reviewing research involving human participants. UREC ensures that the dignity, rights, safety, inclusivity and well-being of all participants are given primary
consideration. Dates of
upcoming meetings can be found here.
Increased demands for greater public scrutiny and accountability mean that studies involving human participants, human material or personal data are formally reviewed by individuals who are independent of the research. For detailed information
please refer to the
University Code of Practice for Research Ethics for Research Involving Human Participants.
For further information, if you are an external researcher looking to undertake collaborative research with the University, or if you wish to report any ethical concerns related to an Oxford Brookes University research study please contact
