A series of booklets covering the design and conduct of human research

The Griffith University Research Ethics Manual (GUREM) is a series of booklets covering the design and conduct of human research. The documents may be used as a resource for ethical clearance applications and as a reference tool for research ethics reviewers.

About using GUREM

GUREM booklets

GUREM is broken up into booklets on specific ethical challenges, methodologies and potential participant pools. The manual isn’t intended to be read cover to cover. Instead, researchers can read booklets on specific topics or search the index to find particular material.

GUREM webpages

GUREM is a living document and is updated regularly to reflect external developments, feedback and requests. To be sure you’re accessing the latest information, refer to the GUREM booklet webpages rather than saving a PDF.

GUREM access and commercialisation

You must be logged into Griffith’s portal to view GUREM booklets. If you are an external researcher interested in obtaining the GUREM, please contact us.

GUREM commercialisation

We’re commercialising the GUREM through licenses to other universities and research institutions. Consequently, Griffith University staff are asked not to send copies of any booklet to anyone external to Griffith.

Updates

The GUREM is a living document that will be updated on the basis of feedback from researchers.
