Requirements for Application
Any researcher who wishes to collect data from Strathmore University is required to make a written application to the Dean, Research and Innovation. This application should be supported by the following documentation to be eligible for review:
Applications must be submitted electronically through an email to firstname.lastname@example.org under the title “Request to collect data at Strathmore University.” The Research Office will provide the researcher with an appropriate answer within two weeks of receipt of a complete application.
If the researcher’s application to the Research Services Office is approved, the researcher shall be required to submit a signed “Confidential Information Form.” This is a commitment to promote accountability through the ethical use of data collected from Strathmore University.
Researchers will also be required to sign an “Information Sharing Form.” This will commit them to share the results of the study with Strathmore University by depositing a copy of the final research report with the Research Services Office.
Data collection approval requests will take into consideration the current administrative, teaching and learning schedules and any other ongoing closely-related researches within the University to minimise disruptions to business processes and over-burdening of potential respondents.
