NON TRADITIONAL RESEARCH OUTPUTS

ERA ELIGIBILITY AND QUALITY IN THE CREATIVE ARTS


Q2 Original Creative Works – Minor Research Component, to be Part of a Portfolio

To be included in this category the output must be part of a portfolio of works on a particular research theme; the portfolio (recorded as a Q1, once complete)will therefore meet the definition of research as amplified in the general requirements for research outputs (as defined on page 5) and thus should make contributions to a particular cultural field in at least one of the following ways:

  • Advancement or extension of knowledge;
  • New discoveries;
  • Innovative ideas, techniques, technologies;
  • Solutions to problems;
  • Refinement/reinterpretation of methods, techniques, existing knowledge;
  • Conceptual advances;
  • Constructive critiques and synthesis; and
  • New means of dissemination.

Research outputs are eligible in the Q2 category only where the relevant eligible researcher is the creator of the creative work rather than, for example, the curator of an exhibition of creative works produced by others (the latter should be recorded as T1, T2 or T3 outputs). However, the exhibition of an Original Creative Work can be used to demonstrate that the work has been made publicly available.

The Q2 creative work sub-categories are the same as the Q1 sub-categories:
