Practice of Ethics for Research in Linguistics

Practice of Ethics for Research in Linguistics (PERL) is a working group at the University of Western Ontario. Our goal is to create a database of ethics protocols so that researchers in all branches of linguistics can have access to various types of research protocols likely to be accepted by a Research Ethics Board (REB).

To accomplish this, we are gathering protocols from researchers in linguistics across Canada that have received approval from an REB. Any revisions required or other comments are also helpful. The protocols we received constitute an on-line electronic resource already available for all researchers in order to help in the circulation of information about existing successful practices and to obtain approval from an REB.

We would like to thank all our colleagues who have contributed to the development of our project by sending us their ethics protocols.

Thank you in advance for your collaboration. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
