- All Hanken students need to fill in the Record of data processing activities forms (e-form for BSc/MSc/eMBA students). Researchers and PhD stidents can write up a Record of Data Processing Activities simultaneously when you write up a Data Management Plan (DMP) with the DMPTuuli tool, with Hanken’s template (See DMPTuuli with Hanken's DMP guidance and DMP template). In other words, the DMP you create with DMPTuuli (Hanken’s template) serves at the same time as a Record of Data Processing Activities, which you can share with participants/subjects/respondents of your research, too (if they ask for it).
- Do you need to request for an ethical review? If your study is one of the six types described in Ethical review on the right, you need to request an ethical review from Hanken's Research Ethics Committee.
