Science Review

Dear LDI-JGH Researchers,

We are writing to inform you about a reorganization of the research ethics/scientific review process.

Effective immediately, researchers will submit all new protocols to the Office of the Research Ethics Committee (A-925), in accordance with the deadlines that appear on the Research Ethics Committee website. It will not be necessary to make a separate electronic submission to the Science Review Committee.

Research Ethics review and Science review will take place on the same day. Following these meetings, researchers will receive written correspondence from both the Research Ethics Committee and the Science Committee with regard to the approval of their submissions, or the need for revisions prior to the granting of final Science and Research Ethics approval.

As in the past, research studies that have obtained independent peer review through federal or provincial funding agencies recognized by the FRQS will not undergo internal science review.

Protocols that have already been submitted for Science Review under the old procedures will be processed as previously. When the researcher receives notification of Science approval, s/he may then submit the protocol directly to the Research Ethics Office, for consideration at the next meeting of the Research Ethics Committee.

We trust that these new procedures will serve to facilitate and expedite the science and research ethics review processes in our institution.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Science Review Committee at extension 4626 or the Office of the Research Ethics Committee at extension 2445.
