Ethics application number for Understanding Society
I am trying submit a journal manuscript but the editors are refusing the accept the paper unless I supply an ethics approval number for the main survey, waves 1 and 3. The USoc website supplies ethics approval numbers for health linkages and biosocial data collection, but for mainstage offers only this:
"Main survey: Ethics approval was received from the University of Essex Ethics Committee
By letter dated 6 July 2007 for Waves 1 and 2
By letter dated 17 December 2010 for Waves 3 to 5
By letter dated 20 August 2013 for Waves 6 to 8
By letter dated 4 October 2016 for Waves 9-11
Ethics Approval number ETH1920-0123 for Wave 12"
What is the ethics approval number for the main survey, waves 1 to 11? The above information is not satisfying journal editors.
