Ethics Committee Approval – by Salma
For those of you that are familiar with conducting research with human participants, you are probably familiar with the research ethics committees based at the University. Almost everyone I know in the academic sphere seems to have a word or two to say about ethics committees. But I'm not here to rant; I'm here to share my utter relief at gaining an approval after a three week wait, and I think this calls for a mini-online celeberation with a slice of 0-calorie-cake:
As you've probbaly figured by now, no, I'm sorry, it wont pop out of your screen and land on your desk ... ;)
Back to the topic (cakes are distracting), have you had experience of undergoing ethical approval for your study? How was the experience for you?
