Ethics submissions

All ethics submissions – human ethics (including low and negligible risk applications), animal research, teaching and breeding – temporarily closed at 11.59pm on Sunday 10 January 2021. Submissions have now recommenced in MyResearch. Adverse event reporting will continue with paper-based forms for animal and human ethics matters.

For human ethics low and negligible risk (LNR) applications, the annual December closures associated with reviewer availability, and the temporary closure in January 2021 for MyResearch data migration, means that applications submitted after 11 December 2020 will be reviewed after 27 January 2021.

The following activities and support materials have been developed for users:

  • targeted information sessions and demonstrations of the system (see training page)
  • MyResearch Training Hub for self-help resources and information, including frequently asked questions and keynote topics
  • a series of communications via email from research leadership.

Please check this page regularly for updates as they become available.
