Research Ethics

SSHES is recognised nationally and internationally for the excellence of its research into sport, health and exercise. This research, at all times, is carried out in accordance with ethical guidelines which safeguard the rights and interests of study participants. Particular emphasis is placed on minimising the risks to participants, ensuring that participants give informed consent and respecting participants’ privacy.

The SSHES Ethics Committee has established a Research Ethics Framework which applies to all research carried out by the school. This is accessible here.
