About the Research Catalogue

For artistic research, the mode of presentation of research results is essential, and traditional formats for research documentation are not designed for this field of research. Internationally, the Research Catalogue (RC) is the most prominent solution offered and provides an online, open access, rich media platform for research and educational purposes.

RC is owned and operated by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR).

The RC enables artists/researchers to deviate from the standard format of journal articles and/or research repositories/archives:

The RC offers the researcher an online platform in which sound, images, video and text can be combined in an integrated format for presentation, and in which the visual disposition and the focus on different media formats can be decided by the author herself/himself.

During 2018 a new responsive, linear, text based mode has been developed, with a structure that can flexible incorporate media files in a text organised presentation form. This mode is specific developed for read out on mobile devices.

The RC now facilitates both individual research outcomes in the form of expositions (there is more than 14.000 registered users at the RC), as well as a range of portal solutions including:

The Research Catalogue server is operated at KTH's IT-department in Stockholm, and both the software and all data are stored at KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, with daily back-up procedures.

partners. SAR main activities include:
