In order to stay within the CUREC 1 or CUREC 1A frame, you can generally only apply one approved procedure to the research, but there are exceptions. If you intend to follow two or more approved procedures, that do not explicitly state they may be combined with another, please consult the relevant IDREC Secretariat to determine whether a CUREC 2 form needs to be completed.
If you know that you need to complete a CUREC 2, you should still check the approved procedures to see if any guidance within these is applicable to your research
If there is no template information sheet or consent form associated with the approved procedure, we recommend you use the generic template participant information sheet and consent form.
Participants at risk
Procedure 4 and its associated document above are for studies involving the administration of clinical interviews incorporating questions concerning current and past psychiatric symptoms, experience of traumatic events including childhood sexual and physical abuse, and questions concerning illegal drug use.
Procedure 9 and its associated document above are for the recruitment and testing of participants selected to score highly on measures indicating slightly higher than average vulnerability to psychological disorders.
Children (including in schools), teachers
Procedure 15 and its associated documents above are for research on teachers and teaching in educational settings for typically-developing students.
Procedure 25 and its associated documents above are for research on children using non-invasive methods in institutional or non-institutional settings. It may be used in conjunction with an opt-out form for research fulfilling certain conditions, as detailed in the procedure. Procedure 25 may be cited in applications to both the Social Sciences and Humanities, and Medical Sciences IDRECs.
Scans, recordings or other non-invasive tests (children)
Procedure 11 and its associated documents above are for studies using non-invasive assessment of infant eye movements and head movements in response to images and sounds, for typically developing infants and toddlers.
Procedure 12 and its associated documents above are for studies involving non-invasive assessment of electrophysiological recordings from the scalp of typically developing infants and toddlers.
Low-risk research undertaken by an undergraduate student whose research is eligible for review by the SSH IDREC or a DREC may apply for expedited review under Approved Procedure 06.
This procedure cannot be used by students whose research is eligible for review either by the Medical Sciences Interdivisional Research Ethics Committee (MS IDREC) or by the Oxford Tropical Research Ethics Committee (OxTREC).
Procedure 23 and its associated documents above are for studies involving blood glucose testing in typically-developing adults.
AP24 and associated documents are for studies involving the taking of urine, saliva, stool and/or venous blood samples from healthy adult volunteers.
