Ethiktool: Software for ethics applications

We developed the "Ethiktool" software to support researchers in composing ethics applications for research on human participants. A user-centered dialogue guides the ethics applicant through all relevant questions and asks for information for putting together the ethics application form and the informed consent form as well as other participant documents. We originally developed the "Ethiktool" software for use at Chemnitz University of Technology's Ethics committee, where it is being used successfully since mid-2021. We are currently advancing and preparing the "Ethiktool" for use at other sites. Upon successful completion of this software development effort, our aim is to provide the Ethiktool free of charge to all interested ethics committees. A glimpse of the Ethiktool's functioning is available in the following video demonstration. If you are interested in testing the software, please contact alexandra.bendixen@....
