Welcome to the Plymouth Ethics Online System. The Plymouth Ethics Online System is a flexible web-based management system to help facilitate the ethical review process.

This is a single sign on system and linked to your University account, so any applications you submit on the system will automatically assign you as the Principal Investigator on the form.


The next update to the application forms will be on: Tuesday 16th July 2024, 8am-10am.

If you have an application in progress that you have not submitted on this date, you may need to update the form and re-collect any signatures once the update has completed.


Please note, an update was performed to the ethics application form on 10.01.2024 at 08:57am.

Any user with an application in progress on the date and time shown will need to update their form, by clicking on "update" at the top of the page where it says Warning: The project owner must update your project in order to submit this form Update, before it can be submitted. If you are waiting for your form to be signed by another collaborator/supervisor/director of studies, then you will need to unlock your form, perform the update and re-sign and submit your application. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Faculty of Health Taught Masters applications for Service Evaluations

Personal Details Information

Since the University personal profile pages were decommissioned, users have not had a way to update their personal information or add an address. This means that there are no address details being pulled through to the PEOS system. However, if you would like to amend this, then you can do so by updating your personal details, which can be found in the location where you log in and at the top right of the screen. Click on your name, choose personal details and then amend your details in the box that appears. Once saved, this will then (only) update the PEOS system PI address. 

To proceed to your Work Area, please click on Log In in the upper right side of your screen.
