Making revisions to your ethics application

If you have received feedback from a reviewer indicating that you need to make revisions to your ethics application, you must edit and then resubmit your application. Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to the PPLS Ethics Submission Portal.
  2. Click on ‘Existing Applications’ and find the project you would like to changeScreen Shot 2017-03-07 at 5.23.29 PM

    • Click the ‘View form’ button.viewform
    • At the top of the page click ‘Edit’.
  5. To make changes to a document you uploaded (e.g., a consent form):
    • Click the ‘Uploads’ buttonuploads
    • Upload a new file (note: you cannot delete or change files you previously uploaded, they are permanently maintained in the record of the application).
  6. If you would like to describe the changes you’ve made to the reviewer:
    • From the ‘Uploads’ page, add a document (type ‘Other’) noting the changes.
  7. Once you’ve made the required changes and/or uploaded revised documents, submit the application (either by clicking ‘uploads complete’ and/or ‘submit signatures’).
  8. The reviewer (and any other project members you need to add their signatures to the changes you’ve made) will be automatically informed of your resubmission.
  9. Please wait for approval to begin/continue data collection.
