The Ethics in Research Committee at the Institute of Collective Health, UFBA (CEP-ISC) was created on 19th March, 2001, in order to meet the demands of research projects by the Institute’s professors, researchers and students, with its operation approved by the National Council for Ethics in Research (CONEP) on 12th November, 2001. CEP-ISC is located on the 2nd floor of the Institute and receives projects for evaluation on a daily basis from 10.00 am to12.00 pm and 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm. In order to be accepted for registration at the CEP-ISC office, the research project should contain all of the documents required for documental validation (see the documents required for inclusion in the register below).
CEP-ISC accepts research projects connected to graduate courses and research activities at the Institute. Should the occasion arise, undergraduate research projects may also be evaluated. In exceptional cases, the submission of projects linked to other institutions may be authorized, provided that they are coordinated by researchers accredited by the Graduate Programme in Collective Health.
Students on the Master’s and Doctorate programmes should submit their projects to CEP-ISC following qualification and before effectively starting to collect data. The research schedule should include this recommendation. In the case of qualitative ethnographic studies or others in which a part of the methodological definitions depend on field work, clarification on these specific characteristics should be detailed in the project.
