Non-Traditional Research Outputs

Non-traditional research outputs provide an important insight into applied research, and creative and practitioner-based research in the Humanities, Creative Arts and Social Sciences. The provision within the ERA framework for portfolios allows for related works that demonstrate coherent research content to be submitted and reviewed as a single output. This is particularly important in the case of applied, creative and practitioner-based research, where a body of work needs to be viewed as a whole so that the full significance of the research involved can be considered. Over 5,000 original creative works, 913 live performances, 727 recorded or rendered works, 753 curated or exhibited events, 791 portfolios and 2,453 research reports for an external body were submitted to ERA 2015. Studies in Creative Arts and Writing (19) submitted the highest number of non-traditional research outputs for assessment. See Section 4 for a more detailed breakdown.
