Letter of REC Chair

Dear Researchers and readers

It is a great honor for me to serve Al-Quds University by heading the Research Ethics Committee (REC), a committee that is appointed by the President of the University Professor Imad Abu Kishek with membership from different disciplines. REC is committed to research ethics implementation by promoting best practices in designing, implementing and publishing research at the University. REC will guide, support and review ethical research applications in accordance with the international ethical standards. These standards ensure that the research participants and subjects are protected utilizing universal human rights principles such as ensuring safety, dignity, equity, equality, confidentiality, respect and privacy.

Ethically approved research is required by different journals, conferences and research publishing companies. The application forms for REC are provided on the University website and are user friendly. Any research which involves humans or animals must get approval by REC prior to initiation of the research project.

Please send the filled application form, the checklist and a short proposal to the deanship of research at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. preferably early during the month.

We look forward to receiving your research applications for ethical review and will do our utmost to respond to your applications, given that REC meets once per month during the two semesters of the academic year.
