Working paper Open Access
This document is a summary of the Research Ethics audit that we have applied for and been granted by Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), as part of the AHRC Creative Informatics project (https://creativeinformatics.org/ ).
We’re sharing this as an exemplar, and in the interests of transparency for all those who we work with directly, as collaborators and as research participants.
This summary is the result of a form required by ECA, that is intended to help researchers recognise any ethical risks in their research, and also to protect researchers, participants and the university itself in case of any harms that may result from a research project. It is an ‘umbrella application’ – designed to cover the majority of research projects we will undertake throughout the project.
