Researchers working within the National High Performance Sports System (NHPSS), and conducting research that involves human participants, are invited to submit research proposals to the AIS for review and ethics approval.
AIS Research Submission Process
The AIS research submission process below outlines the order of engagement between the researcher and the two AIS committees.
Researchers are invited to engage with the RRC as early as possible to initiate the research submission process.
COVID-19: Research Risk Management
The AIS is committed to effective mitigation of infection transmission risk.
Where research involves face-to-face interaction between personnel - including the research team and/or participants - researchers must complete a COVID-19 Risk Assessment and Mitigation Plan (RAMP). This applies to both new and previously approved submissions.
Where previously approved research involves face-to-face interaction between personnel, a COVID-19 RAMP should be submitted to the RRC before recommencing research activities. Ethics approval will be temporarily suspended until a COVID-19 RAMP is approved by the RRC.
