Please refer to the University of Auckland Human Participant Ethics Committee web page.

To facilitate obtaining an approval we suggest using as a template one of our successful applications for the ethics approval of a typical "experimental economics" study.

IMPORTANT: Please do not change anything except the names of the investigators, the name of the department and those few sections in the beginning of the application describing the motivation and the goals of your study.
