Research Ethics

Ethical Consent For Human Research

Any staff or students at Waikato Management School who are planning to conduct a research project that involves collecting data from people and/or organisations (including research, evaluation, observation and consulting) will first need to obtain ethics approval from the WMS Ethics Committee.

Ethical approval MUST be obtained prior to commencing the data collection phase of the research.

This page contains information about Waikato Management School's processes for ethical approval, including the University of Waikato's regulations, links to the appropriate documents; and a description of the procedure to follow.

Ethics applications should be submitted online via Ethics Approval.

If you have any questions about the ethics application process, please contact the WMS Research and Postgraduate Manager, Amanda Sircombe, email [email protected], phone (07) 838 4376, room MSB.3.36.
