Inclusion and use of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

SOPs may be used to complement an AEC application form and/or save time for the researchers/teacher. Each SOP must be cited in the relevant section on the application form and must include its number and title, for example:       

  •  AHT 23 Object Recognition Test 

NOTE: ANY variation in technique from an SOP as written must be stated in the application and the variation described in full. Similarly where an SOP requires details on the use of anaesthetic, analgesic or any other information this must be provided in the application.
