Call for Presentations: Instructions
22nd Annual Meeting
Thursday – Sunday, October 25 – 28, 2012
Ethics Review – Human Subjects Research
Research involving human subjects that has not followed appropriate international ethics standards will not be accepted for presentation.
When reporting human subjects research, authors should state in their 'Methods' section whether the subjects gave informed consent and whether the study was approved by a research ethics committee [also known as an ethics review board, institutional review board ('IRB'), or human subjects committee]. For reference, see the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki, Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects, item B-15.
If you require assistance regarding these ethics requirements, please contact the Program Committee.
