CUREB Mandatory Requirements for Research during COVID-19 Outbreak:

In light of recent Provincial government announcements about a step-by-step resumption of activities, the Office of Research Ethics would like to give an update on Covid-related research activity.

Researchers who require campus access should continue to follow the standard university procedures for campus access, link below, but to check back periodically for further updates:

For off-campus field research, all Carleton procedures should be followed. In addition, the researchers must follow all public health requirements of the jurisdiction where the research is conducted. If the research is carried out in a third-party host organization, any additional constraints imposed by this host organization will also apply.

The initiation or resumption of any such research involving in-person research interactions requires:

The completion and submission of the COVID-19 Attestation form to CUREB (found also on our Forms and Templates page). This form is for REB purposes and is to be submitted in CuResearch along with your protocol form or change to protocol form, as appropriate.

Contact our office at ethics@carleton.ca with any questions, concerns or suggestions.
