Complete an ethics application form or request an amendment

How to complete and submit an ethics application through the School of Health in Social Science.

  1. Ethics applications should be submitted using the ‘Ethics Application Form’ available in Word format on this page. We no longer accept applications through the online self-assessment form.
  2. The Ethics Application Form guides you through the ethical considerations for your work and gives an indication of where you need to gain ethical approval from. You won’t need to complete all sections of the form so please read through the embedded guidance carefully.
  3. Once you have completed the form, send it alongside any relevant attachments to your Subject Area Ethics Inbox (Nursing Studies nursing@ed.ac.uk) (CPASS CPASS.ethics@ed.ac.uk) (Clinical Psychology submitting.ethics@ed.ac.uk) and (MA in Health, Science and Society mahssug@ed.ac.uk)
  4. If you need to make a change to your project, please notify your Subject Area Ethics Lead by completing the ‘HISS Amendments Form’ and submitting it to your Subject Area Ethics Inbox
