– For all students’ applications, advisors must review the application before it is submitted to check whether the application addresses ethical issues (e.g., anonymity, confidentiality, right for withdrawal with no negative consequences, etc.) and has necessary documents (e.g., informed consent form, debriefing form, measurements, pictures, BAIS announcements etc.)
– Psychology undergraduate students who work on undergraduate research projects that will NOT involve external institutions (e.g. TÜBİTAK, Ministry of National Education, etc.) or be aimed for publication should apply to the Psychology Department Ethics Committee instead of the University Ethics Committee. Students should fill out the ‘Bilkent Student Ethics Form’ (see link below), attach the necessary documents (e.g., informed consent form, debriefing form, questionnaires, pictures, BAIS announcements etc.), and send without signatures to email@example.com to start the evaluation process.
– If Psychology Undergraduate Students need to submit Ethics Committee Approval to the institutions outside (e.g. TÜBİTAK, Ministry of National Education) or aim to publish their findings from the study, their supervisors (not students) themselves need to apply to the University Ethics Committee via Staff Ethics Form.
– Psychology Graduate Students need to apply directly to the University Ethics Committee by their names via Students Ethics Form.
