Welcome to the Online Forms website

The Online Forms website is an online system that enables users to complete their applications for research electronically.

The website hosts a licensed copy of the NHMRC's Human Research Ethics Application (HREA), as well as the NSW Health and SA Health (SSA) Forms. Online Forms continues to operate for applications in Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and South Australia.

APPLICATIONS TO NEW SOUTH WALES


Researchers should continue to use Online Forms to generate HREA applications for ethics review by HRECs in NSW, and SSA applications for NSW Health sites.  Please first contact the NSW HREC and NSW sites to which you wish to submit, to determine whether the applications should be completed in Online Forms or in REGIS. 


APPLICATIONS TO ACT HEALTH HREC


Please contact ACT Health for advice on how to submit applications to ACT Health HREC. 


NMA Applications to SA public health organisations: clarification on local and cross-jurisdictional arrangements

 
NMA HREC applications to SA public health organisation HRECs: applicants can continue to generate the HREA as usual on Online Forms, by selecting/creating a New Project, then the jurisdiction “South Australia” then HREA as Ethics Form Type.  The new HREA will be generated. 
 
SA SSAs where the ethical review is provided by a WA, QLD or Victorian public health organisation HREC:  start by selecting/creating a New Project. Select “South Australia” as the jurisdiction, then select MDF as the Ethics Form Type.  Complete the MDF form, return to the Project view, select the SSA tab within the project, and create the new SSA form(s) as needed. Select “South Australia” as the location, and the SSA form will be generated.

APPLICATIONS TO VICTORIA, QUEENSLAND and MATER HEALTH


Online Forms has been replaced by a new website called ERM (Ethical Review Manager) for applications in Mater Health, Queensland and Victoria. 

ERM will be used to create and submit all applications and post-approval reports for Mater Health, Queensland and Victoria. 

You should be able to log into https://au.forms.ethicalreviewmanager.com with your existing Online Forms email login and password if your submitted application/s have been uploaded to Mater Health, Queensland and Victoria's Research Ethics Database (RED) systems 

(and the password can be reset if you have forgotten it).

Online Forms will remain live for the foreseeable future for Mater Health, Queensland and Victoriabut only as an archive (you WILL NOT be able to create/submit new applications, but you can refer to old ones). 

You can also download past application forms and supporting documents and save them to a local drive.


Online Forms will continue to operate for applications in Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and South Australia.
