Animal/Human Subjects

IEEE-EMBS supports the standard requirements on the use of animal and human subjects for scientific and biomedical research. For all EMBC papers reporting data from studies involving human and/or animal subjects, formal review and approval, or formal review and waiver, by an appropriate institutional review board or ethics committee is required and should be stated in the papers. For those investigators whose Institutions do not have formal ethics review committees, the principles outlined in the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000, should be followed.
