Does your research team involve more than one party?

Please note that it is the researcher's responsibility to ensure that, where required, an appropriate written agreement regarding ownership of data and intellectual property is in place. If you are unsure whether this is needed, please consult the Intellectual Property website.

A signed agreement may be required where:

  • A research team includes both students and staff; or
  • Where researchers from different institutions are collaborating on a project.

A copy of the signed agreement should be attached to your online ethics application or forwarded to humanethics@unisa.edu.au once it has been finalised.
