The Finnish National Board on Research Integrity (set by the ministry of education and culture) (http://www.tenk.fi/) has updated instructions in 2019 of human science research and its ethical advance evaluation (https://www.tenk.fi/sites/tenk.fi/files/Ihmistieteiden_eettisen_ennakkoarvioinnin_ohje_2019.pdf). The University of Oulu abides by the principles.
