Ethics approval processes

Meeting the relevant ethics approval requirements in-country is essential for research integrity, both in terms of the conduct of the research and the products and outcomes. The RDI Network has undertaken a desk-review of ethics approval processes in select countries in the Asia-Pacific region. You can find the products from this review here.
