Review process

After submission deadline each month, all projects received will be carefully checked to ensure that projects meet the criteria required to allow a thorough review of the project.

Any project not meeting these criteria in full will not be accepted for review at the next HREC meeting and will be returned to the principal researcher for attention.

Submission of a new research project by the 11am deadline is not a guarantee that a project will be accepted for review by the HREC at its next meeting.
