NON TRADITIONAL RESEARCH OUTPUTS

ERA ELIGIBILITY AND QUALITY IN THE CREATIVE ARTS


S1 RECORDED/RENDERED CREATIVE WORKS – MAJOR RESEARCH COMPONENT

ERA Weighting: 1

To be included in this category the output must 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.

ForRecorded/RenderedCreativeWork research outputs, the research component is contained within the recording/rendering.Simple documentations of live performances of creative works without a research component are not eligible to be submitted as this research output type, but may be submitted as supporting material under Live Performance ofCreativeWorks (see R1 and R2 above, orR3 below).

For all S1 research outputs, a research statement is mandatory. This should outline the research component of the recording/rendering under the following three headings,which should combine to be a maximum of 2,000 characters (approximately 250 words):

  • ResearchBackground(including field, context and research question)
  • Research Contribution (including innovation and new knowledge)
  • Research Significance (evidence of excellence)

There are six sub-categories, outlined below:

  • (S1_1) Audio/Visual Recording
  • (S1_2) Performance
  • (S1_3) Inter-arts
  • (S1_4) Digital creative work
  • (S1_5) Website/web exhibition
  • (S1_6) Other
