RESEARCH ETHICS AND ROMEO RESEARCHER PORTAL
OCAD University adheres to and endorses the principles and guidelines of the second edition of the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2 2014). The policies and procedures described within it are the final authority in relation to OCAD U's policies and procedures. The TCPS 2 can be found here.
Any OCAD U research that involves living human participants or human biological materials (whether from living or deceased individuals) must be reviewed and approved by the Research Ethics Board (REB) of the university. Research projects or pilots (including student projects/training, feasibility studies, etc.) conducted under the auspices of OCAD U and using human participants require ethics approval before the research may begin. Learn more about the OCAD U REB here. The full life-cycle of an application for research ethics review can be viewed here.
ROMEO Researcher portal: All research ethics-related forms and reports are processed on-line through the ROMEO researcher portal. Researchers may access their account here. ROMEO works best when accessed using Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer; for best results, do not use other browsers. More information on the ROMEO research portal can be found here.
