Developing intercultural understandings can support collaborative research. Possible sources of information relevant to collaborative research in Indigenous contexts:
UBC Library Catalogue: Searching for "Indigenous research ethics" results in a very focused retrieval of books and media.
Summon: Searching for "Indigenous research ethics" retrieves a larger range of material, including articles and chapters in books. Summon has the added advantage of allowing users to filter results based on material type, discipline, library location, etc. (See the left-hand column).
Remember to try searching synonyms, for example, "First Nations research protocol" in Summon.
