Ethics committees advise researchers on ethical issues relating to their research. For example, whether the research meets the criteria for ethically responsible conduct. There are a number of ethics committees within Leiden University.
Does your institute or faculty have an ethics committee? If so, you should submit your research to the committee for approval. You can find more information about the working practices of the ethics committee under your faculty tab or in the overview below.
