A tracking sheet for research ethics committee members – A Human Research Ethics resource

An Excel spreadsheet to assist with the tracking of the appointment, renewal and end-date of members of research ethics committee members.  This includes keeping track of their participation in professional development for the committee and for members.  This is a useful resource for research offices and the Chair/Secretary of a committee.  Even though this was produced for HRECs in Australia, it can be easily updated for other jurisdictions and standards.
