Reporting Requirements

Licence holders must submit a brief plain language summary (approximately 200 words) describing the outcomes from the past year’s licensed research activity. Project summaries are compiled into an annual Compendium of Research, which summarizes all licensed research that is carried out in the NWT each year.

The report must be submitted digitally (through POLAR) to the Scientific Services Office by June 30 of the following year in which the licence was issued (for example, a summary of 2022 research work is due, at the latest, on June 30, 2023). If a researcher applies for a new licence before June 30, their summary is due at the same time as they submit your new application.  Please ensure that the licence and application numbers appear at the top of the report.

Researchers need to submit copies of any final report(s) produced, particularly if publications result from the study. These report submissions may take the form of a published document, thesis report, technical report, posters or other public presentation formats.
