Degree projects and clinical placement quality improvement projects

There are two types of studies that are generally not considered as research and that require special treatment.

  1. The first is degree projects.
  2. The second is clinical placement quality improvement projects within health and welfare.

Such studies may, however, be intended for publication in the form of a scientific article. The scientific journal may then require that the study be preceded by ethical vetting. If so, an advisory opinion is required.

How to apply:

  1. Complete the form "Internal ethical review". Applications concerning degree projects and clinical placement quality improvement projects are to be made in the supervisor’s name, with the student as a co-applicant.
  2. Enclose a research plan, any instrumentation (interview guide, questionnaire, description of experiments, etc.), letters to research subjects and the like.
  3. Submit a signed hard copy of your complete application to the secretary of the Research Ethics Committee:

    Research Ethics Committee
    Attn. Karolina Boberg
    School of Health and Welfare
    PO Box 1026
    SE-551 11 JÖNKÖPING

    The application must reach the committee no later than 11 working days before the meeting at which the application is meant to be considered. Late or incomplete applications will be processed at the subsequent meeting.

The applications are registered and are thus public documents.

If no additional information is needed, the committee should be able to deliver an opinion to the applicant no later than 14 days after the application was considered.
