New RQHR Research Policies and Procedures are Now Available Online

25-Jan-2017

Effective January 1st, 2017, the RQHR has adopted 7 new research policies and procedures to govern the conduct of research in the RQHR:

  • The Ethical Conduct of Research and Other Studies Involving Human Participants
  • Operational Approval for Research
  • Externally Funded and/or Sponsored Research
  • Indirect Costs of Research
  • Data Storage and Retention
  • Scholarly Integrity
  • Intellectual Property

These policies and their associated procedures can be accessed on the intranet (policy numbers 102-108) and additional information can be accessed on the Research & Performance Support  website. One of the most significant changes relates to obtaining Operational Approval for Research; additional information can be accessed  here.

Please note that all research conducted within the RQHR and/or its auspices is subject to the terms of these policies and procedures.  It is the responsibility of each individual conducting research in the region to be familiar with their content.

Sincerely,
