The UAEU regards the maintenance of high ethical standards in research as a central
and critical responsibility, and takes the greatest care in ensuring that the ethics
and integrity of research is upheld, as the individual researcher has a responsibility
not only to him/herself but also to society.
Members of the academic community have the responsibility to act in accordance with
the UAE law, in addition to cultural norms as well as the UAEU codes of practice,
policies, and standards of professionalism.
The UAEU has a Research Ethics Review Board that is responsible for establishing and
maintaining ethical review of research proposals. Researchers who plan to perform
research on subjects at UAEU must obtain approval of the University in advance. To
request a Research Ethics Review please download the form here.
Note: Any research project requiring experiments that deal with human and animal subjects
or tissue, hazardous/bio-hazardous material or processes, as well as questionnaires
has to get approval from the UAEU Research Ethics Committees as outlined in the Research
Policies and Procedures. To submit your application proceed to Ethics Application Submission Portal.
Please note that the new Research Ethics Review system is available and is currently
active. The old system will not accept any new applications effective of 15/04/2022.
