They developed this resource as a companion document to the first Ethics Tool Kit (2003) that focused on the emerging issues surrounding ethical research practices in First Nations. The most useful feature of this guide is its three templates to assist First Nations in the development of research policies and agreements, including:
- Model Code of Research Ethics provides useful policies and procedures to be considered in governing, managing, or guiding research activity in First Nations.
- Model for a Collaborative Research Agreement includes the basics needed to ensure a full and equal partnership between the community and the research partners in all aspects of the research process.
- Model for a Data-Sharing Protocol between the First Nation and research partners. It establishes ownership of the data, including how and under what conditions the data may be shared.
