The Tasmania Social Sciences HREC (SS HREC) reviews all research involving human participation that does not fall within the scope of the Tasmania Health and Medical HREC.
The committee covers a broad range of research areas including psychology, sociology, arts, education, law and business.
The Social Sciences HREC generally reviews research involving human participation that is conducted under the auspices of the University of Tasmania (such as for a University degree, a grant administered by the University, or for a planned publication or report where the author(s) will cite their role within the University). Other research may be reviewed by request.
For student projects, School approval is required. Applications cannot be submitted until this process is complete.
All other applications to the SS HREC are required to have undergone a peer review process prior to submission to the HREC.
