Upon successful completion of the candidacy process and acknowledgement from the supervisor and supervisory committee that the doctoral candidate is ready to proceed with data collection for their research, a submission must be made to the AU Research Ethics Board (if applicable), and any other approval bodies. When such approvals are obtained, a copy of the approvals must be provided to the supervisor and the Academic Unit. A copy is retained in the doctoral candidate’s file held by the supervisor, and in the doctoral candidate’s file within the academic unit. The doctoral candidate must also retain a copy of the approvals for inclusion as an Appendix in the dissertation.
