Before submitting an application for Human Ethics Approval, you must register with Researcher Information Services (RISe) and complete an introductory online tutorial.
1. Register with RISe
RISe is UBC's secure, online document management system used by all UBC-affiliated REBs. All submissions and department approvals of ethics applications to any of the UBC-affiliated REBs must use RISe. All amendments, renewals, and requests for acknowledgment to previously approved applications must also use RISe.
If you are a first-time user, please register with RISe to create an account.
2. Complete the TCPS 2 Introductory Tutorial (CORE)
It is also recommended that all individuals complete the Introductory Tutorial for the Tri-Council Policy Statement (TCPS2): Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. To access the tutorial please click on the following links: English version, French version. All non-Faculty personnel who are associated with a research project and who will have contact with the human participants are required to have completed the TCPS online tutorial before the application is submitted to the REB. This includes (but is not limited to) undergraduate and graduate students, medical residents, research assistants, research coordinators, etc. The REB requires that all Principal Investigators be familiar with the TCPS and recommends that they also complete the TCPS tutorial, especially when the Principal Investigator supervises or teaches classes for graduate students or medical residents.
Those who have completed the original TCPS tutorial or the CHRPP tutorial will not need to complete the CORE tutorial, although you are advised to familiarize yourself with the new Tri Council Policy Statement.
Queries regarding CORE can be sent to Kirsten Bell, part-time Research Ethics Analyst, UBC Office of Research Ethics (email@example.com).
