Applicants proposing research involving human subjects, including interviews
and access to documents affecting the privacy of individuals, must comply
with the conditions set out in the Tri-Council
Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. This
requirement applies whenever living persons or communities may be affected
by the proposed research, whatever the discipline(s) involved, and could
include such areas as oral history and biography. SSHRC reserves final
judgement in all matters relating to research ethics.
