UBC guidance on the exclusion of research participants based on language
UBC’s Research Ethics Boards recently clarified their adherence to the Tri-Council Policy Statement on exclusion of individuals from research participation based on language. UBC’s REBs prohibit the exclusion of non-English speaking individuals from research unless there is sufficient justification for the exclusion. Selection of research participants must be fair and equitable and based on the Tri-Council Policy Statement’s Principle of Justice. For details, go to Policy on Exclusion of Research Participants based on Language.
