Members of staff, post-doctoral, doctoral, MA and BA students which conduct research projects that collect or use data from human participants are asked to  gain ethical approval before data collection begins. DECE adheres to the University of Thessaly Code of Research Ethics and Integrity ( To gain ethical approval applicants are required to fill in an application form and submit it to the Secretary of the Department accompanied by a detailed research plan that outlines all necessary ethical considerations.
