The Research Catalogue offers two types of accounts, a basic and a full account.
Upgrading to the full account requires you to email a signed and scanned Research Catalogue Registration Letter Agreement together with a proof of your identity to the Society for Artistic Research (SAR) addressed to rc[at]researchcatalogue.net.
SAR requires proof of your identity before a full account will be created in order to avoid malicious use of the website including the upload of copyrighted material without the permission of the respective copyright holder(s). This is to protect third party copyright holder(s) from copyright infringements and SAR from legal claims that might result from illegal use of copyrighted material. As part of the RC registration process, only your name and email address will be stored on the RC servers.
