Office of the Vice-President, Research (VPR)
The Office of the Vice-President, Research maintains a COVID-19 Information page that addresses key concerns related to the continuity of SFU’s research activities, including research planning, core facilities, research involving human participants, fieldwork and international collaborations, and research funding opportunities. The information is organized as FAQs and is regularly reviewed and updated with the latest available information.
Office of Research Ethics (ORE)
SFU Research Ethics Board (REB) Guidance during COVID-19 provides information on guidelines for research involving human participants. As of July 23, 2020, all in-person human participant research (HPR), on or off campus, requires an HPR Safety Plan submitted to the ORE for review and approval, along with the standard ethics applications prior to proceeding.
ORE is currently running Weekly Remote Research Ethics Help Sessions to assist SFU researchers with amending their studies in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The sessions are held on Wednesdays at 1:00pm Pacific Time via Zoom.
The SFU Library is gradually restoring in-person services, beginning with mediated access to the library’s physical collections. SFU Library users may now place requests for print materials and request book chapters for scanning and digital delivery. More information and updates on their services for remote research and teaching and learning are available on their website, Library service updates during COVID-19.
The SFU IT Services provides a list of resources and tools for remote study, work and research.
