• Toolbox of Research Principles in an Aboriginal Context: Ethics, Respect, Fairness, Reciprocity, Collaboration and Culture - 2nd edition
Apr 25, 2017

In its efforts to transform the research environment and practices in an Aboriginal context, the Toolbox1 published online in 2014 has become a reference and synthesis tool for academia and practitioners alike. As such, the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission (FNQLHSSC) and the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) have once again joined forces to continue documenting issues relating to ethical principles of research in an Aboriginal context.

The overall objective of the Toolbox remains the same: to propose concrete tools that will facilitate dialogue and collaboration between partners participating in a research process. The Toolbox must also serve as a comprehensive guide on the question of ethics so that it may be applied in a context of training, both for students who intend to work with First Nations, Inuit and Métis, as well as the communities that must assess the research conducted on their territories or with their people. In addition to being informative and educational, the focus of this Toolbox will be to put forward a renewed approach to research practices and collaboration with Aboriginal People.

To improve the Toolbox, the editors of this publication have issued a new call for papers. The primary objective of this call is to compile information on new issues in research ethics.

The new edition of the Toolbox is expected for late fall 2018, and will be available in both French and English. The Toolbox will be produced in partnership with DIALOG Aboriginal Peoples Research and Knowledge Network.
