ERIC provides evidence-informed guidance for researchers and others wishing to ensure their research respects the rights, dignity and wellbeing of children and young people, regardless of context.

It’s hard to believe that it has been 7 years since the launch of the Ethical Research Involving Children (ERIC) resources and website. Over this time, the ERIC resources have been translated into 6 languages and accessed by researchers and others in over 185 countries, with the website typically receiving over 2000 unique visitors per month.

In the time since ERIC was launched in 2013, the Charter, guidance and resources have been accessed in over 170 countries.

We want to continue to ensure as many researchers as possible have access to these resources and can share their expertise.

This is why we have developed new website features which include:

  • An interactive and updated glossary
  • Social media channels
  • Quarterly newsletters direct to your inbox
  • Expanded library with advanced search functions
  • Six-weekly blogs with internationally renowned experts and others focused on leading-edge topics linked to ethical research involving children

We are also developing:

  • A global survey on ethical research involving children
  • International conference planning
  • Online training materials
  • New international case studies

These latest features are designed to foster global conversation about what matters for children in research. We look forward to you joining the conversation.
