About the Research Catalogue

The RC functions as a platform for the dissemination of self-published content as well as peer-reviewed publications. The RC hosts a number of journals and institutional publications that are peer-reviewed. The responsibility for quality control of content published in the main RC portal, however, rests solely with authors themselves.

The open source status of the RC is essential to its nature and serves its function as a connective and transitional layer between academic discourse and artistic practice, thereby constituting a discursive field for artistic research.

The RC creates a link between

(1) elaborated documentation of the work,

(2) expositions and comments that engage with the contribution of the work as research, and

(3) creation of individual profiles that present the researchers' work and activities.

Given that the RC is a site for artistic research, to add a work is to make a claim that the work can be seen as research; through expositions, comments and articles the initial claim is transformed into an argument. It is believed that the reflective space provided by the RC can become an essential part of the research process by providing a suitable structure in which to develop the relationship between documentation and exposition.

The RC is the backbone of journals, such as JAR, RUUKKU, and the Journal for Sonic Studies. Potential journal expositions emerge from the range of the artistic research activities taking place in the RC. Expositions are submitted for peer-review and development within the RC space itself.

Moreover, the RC is used in institutional research management and funding administration and application.

If you believe that RC software might also support your research database needs then explore the possibility of using the RC as your repository, by contacting us.

The Research Catalogue is provided by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR).
