Guidelines and legislation
The Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences (BSS) expects its researchers to carry out their research in compliance with the guidelines listed below.
If researchers intend to divert from these guidelines, they must explain in their research plan why this course of action has been chosen.
All research must, of course, be conducted in compliance with all relevant national and international laws, rules and agreements. In the drop-down menus below, you can find some practical advice for ensuring that you comply with legislation such as the GDPR (the ‘privacy law’) and the Medical Research Involving Human Participants Act (WMO).
Please note: research that requires review under the WMO must be reviewed by a Medical Ethics Review Board (METc).
