Register a new study (practice portal)

This is the practice portal.

You are about to register a new study to be assessed by the FEtC-H. It is a prerequisite to be familiarized with the FEtC-H regulations. Please refer to the FEtC-H website for the regulations of the General Chamber and the Linguistics Chamber. You can save yourself and the committee members a great deal of time by making sure you are properly informed.

In order to properly assess a study with respect to informed consent, burden and risks to participants, and data-management procedures the FEtC-H needs a detailed description of the study. After a few introductory questions you are asked to give details about participants, and what type(s) of research the study includes: observational research, intervention research and/or task-based or interview research. For each type of research you are then required to explain details about the design. You will be asked to estimate the burden and risks involved for the participants, and to upload all forms of informed consent adapted to your study.

If you work with different participant groups undergoing different research trajectories (one group, for example, is given two tasks, the other three) you will need to describe each group separately in the manner mentioned above. NB: Also, when you work with different age groups, you are required to create different trajectories. See for relevant age groups the different types of information letters and consent forms we offer at the website. Please note that consent forms to be used in an official application are to be found on intranet.

Depending on the complexity of your research the specification may take considerable time. However, you can always interrupt the registration, save it, and finish it later.

When filling in the forms please avoid using abbreviations the FEtC-H might not be familiar with. If you have questions, first consult the regulations of the General Chamber or the Linguistics Chamber, and if necessary contact the secretary (Desiree Capel, fetc-gw@uu.nl).
