AHRECS: Voice for constructive change. We provide access to some of the leading experts in human research ethics in Australia and New Zealand.

We provide expert and high quality consultancy services relating to research integrity, human research ethics, educational integrity and publication ethics for Australia, New Zealand and the wider Asia-Pacific region.

Over the years AHRECS has provided advice on human research ethics and research integrity matters to researchers, research ethics reviewers and ethics managers. Our senior consultants have been appointed to research misconduct panels. In 2014, we commenced providing independent and expert advice on difficult research ethics reviews/applications for ethics clearance. We offer this service on an ad hoc basis or as part of a service agreement. Please contact us if you would like to set up such an arrangement.

We have been offering short training courses for years. In 2016, we devised and worked with colleagues to run a Masters unit on Social Research Ethics for the University of Western Australia. Again, please let us know if your institution might be interested in incorporating such a unit in their programs.

Our senior consultants are some of the more familiar names from the Australasian research integrity and human research ethics sectors. Together we bring more than five decades of experience of the practice of research integrity/human research ethics and have drawn on that in their professional engagement in advice, consultation and training.

AHRECS is based upon a fundamental commitment to the importance of facilitating research, and a belief that the best way to protect the rights and welfare of participants, to fulfil institutional obligations and to safeguard them from risk, is by resourcing the reflective practice of researchers.

Australasian Human Research Ethics Consultancy Services: Our work in Asia

澳大利亚和新西兰人类研究伦理咨询服务 / 澳大利亞和新西蘭人類研究倫理諮詢服務

Despite our name and our strong connections to Australia and New Zealand, for several years we have been providing advice to institutions in East and South-East Asia. In 2003, Gary Allen helped the Hanoi School of Public Health in Vietnam establish its human research ethics arrangements.

Following a period as an external examiner in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Hong Kong, Mark Israel advised the Faculty of Law there on research integrity. More recently, in 2016, he was invited to deliver a lecture series on research ethics and integrity at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Tainan, National Chiao Tung University in Hsinchu, and Academia Sinica in Taipei. Mark returned to NCKU in 2017 to deliver two more lectures and workshops.


Individually and together we have written a fair amount (see Gary, Mark and Colin‘s profiles for references) about the inherent flaws of the enforcement and compliance approach. A more constructive, sustainable and positive approach is one that has a resourcing reflective practice objective. See this short whiteboard video for more about this approach.
