Hi,

I have worked om a paper which uses the 2011 DHS data for Bangladesh and Nepal. We are in the stage of submitting this paper to a journal. The journal requirement specifies the authors to include a statement on ethics approval. I would appreciate your guidance in this regard. Do you have some format or statements that need to be included while writing the ethics statement.

Many thanks
Bibhu

Dear Bridgette,

Can I get an instructions regarding ethics approval statement?
I'm submitting a paper. Only DHS (Standard DHS, Continuous DHS, Interim DHS, Special DHS) surveys were used.

Thank you.

Good day!

I am also planning to conduct a research using 2013 DHS data of the Philippines. To obtain ethical clearance, I am required to submit documentation regarding the ethical guidelines for data collection, storage, and processing of the data. I am also required to cite the data privacy policy of the institution which stores the data in line with the data privacy act of the Philippines. I hope you could help me with these documentation reports.

Your response will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi,

I am drafting a manuscript that uses the 2014 Cambodia DHS data and wondered if DHS prefers authors to include an ethics statement in manuscripts? Any guidance on ethics statements or information on ethics approval would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Dear Bridgette,

I did an analysis using the 2013 Philippines Demographic and Health Survey data. I am planning to submit my paper for publication and the journal is asking for ethical approval. I hope you could help me with this. Thank you!

Hi!

Similar with the last query, I've also used the 2013 Philippine Demographic and Health Survey and planning to submit it for publication but the journal is also requesting for a statement of ethical approval. In the final report, it was mentioned that the survey protocol were reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board of ICF International. However, I would further like to be enlightened if technical and ethical clearance approval were also done in the Philippines.

Thank you so much for assisting me on this matter.
