External Researchers to Nipissing University

If you are external to Nipissing University/Canadore College and wish to conduct research with Nipissing or Canadore faculty, staff or students, you must first obtain (1) institutional authorization from the Office of the Provost & Vice-President, Academic & Research (request form here), and then (2) ethical approval from the Nipissing University Research Ethics Board.

Once you have obtained a signed institutional authorization form, you can request ethical approval by completing an Institution Approval Request using the ROMEO system (see link above). You will need to attach your home institution’s approved protocol, ethical clearance letter/certificate, and all corresponding appendices.

Prior to submitting your application to the NUREB, you should contact Canadore College directly regarding their willingness to participate. Proof of institutional authorization should be included in the application as a condition of final approval.
