The Research Ethics’s mandate is to review scientific research proposals or projects and issue research clearance on behalf of NACOSTI. It focuses on building researchers’ capacity on ethical issues in order to conduct research with the utmost integrity. A researcher who intends to conduct their research must first put in an application for ethical clearance. The review process involves screening the application documents; identifying suitable reviewers, reviewing the documents; and issuing clearance to the applicants. Once an applicant has received ethical clearance, they are required to apply for a research permit from NACOSTI before proceeding with data collection.
