Research Ethics applications( RIMS)

  • Submission for ethics review is via the electronic process ONLY.
  • Electronic submissions should be done at the following website:
  • For this purpose, obtain a username and password from: Ms Dorcas Mokalapas's email address:[email protected] and provide her with your full names, personnel or student number, preferred VALID email address and the department.
  • Upon submission of your documents electronically, the system would generate a “Temp Number, e.g. Temp2017-0000”.  Note that this “Temp Number” will be converted to a protocol reference e.g. GW 201707011HS at our REC office.
  • Kindly note that it is the responsibility of the researcher to log onto  and keep track of the progress of your research study and check for correspondence from our REC office.
  • A User's Guide is available to assist you with the electronic submission process.  Please click on the links below for more information.
