Creative Works - Non-traditional Research OutputsCreative Works Reporting Form
DefinitionFor disciplines in which non-traditional research output types may be submitted, eligible research types include the following non-traditional research output types:
- Original Creative Works
- Live Performance of Creative Works
- Recorded/Rendered Creative Works; and
- Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events.
These non-traditional research output types are described in further detail below.
To be eligible, non-traditional research outputs must have been made available publicly during the research output reference period.
Multiple exhibitions/performances of non-traditional research output types may be counted as separate outputs where each subsequent exhibition/performance introduces a new research component to the work that builds upon the initial research component of the output.
Multiple exhibitions/performances of these research output types cannot be submitted as multiple outputs where the repeated exhibitions/performances do not introduce a new research component to the work e.g. a touring exhibition can only be submitted as a single output.
Research Point Value1 research point
Original Creative Works
- the relevant eligible researcher is the creator of the creative work rather than, for example, the curator of an exhibition of creative works created by others.
- Research Statement of Non-Traditional Research Outputs submitted.
The exhibition of an original creative work can be used to demonstrate that the work has been made publicly available but each instance of such a research output can only be claimed once. Exhibited created works can be submitted as either:
- a single item exhibited as an individual creative work (equal to one research output); or
- a group of works exhibited as a cohesive/thematic collection of the work of a single creator (also equal to one research output).
Subcategories of Original Creative Works
|Visual Art Work||A research output such as a fine art and crafts work, diagram, map, photographic image, sculpture or installation.|
|Design/Architectural Work||Realised, constructed, fabricated or unrealised building and design projects. 'Unrealised' projects must have an output that provides evidence of the research involved|
|Textual Work||Written creative work that is not eligible to be submitted as a book or journal article, such as a novel or art review. Exhibition catalogues and catalogue entries should be submitted in this sub-category|
|Other||Other original creative works that do not fit in the other research output types. For example, scholarly editions, scholarly translations and public policy reports may be submitted under this category, provided they meet the relevant eligibility criteria, including meeting the definition of research|
Live Performance of Creative WorksFor Live Performance of Creative Works research outputs, the actual public performance is what is claimed.
- Documentation may be in the form of a recording of the performance, reviews, performance programs or other material that Avondale considers useful in this process

Subcategories of the Live Performance of Creative Works
|Music||New work or a demonstrably new or innovative interpretation or production of an existing work.|
|Play||New work or a demonstrably new or innovative interpretation or production of an existing work.|
|Dance||New work or a demonstrably new or innovative interpretation or production of an existing work.|
|Other||Other new work or a demonstrably new or innovative interpretations or productions of an existing work.|
Recorded/Rendered Creative WorksFor Recorded/Rendered Creative Works research outputs, the research component is contained within the recording/rendering. Simple documentations of live performances of creative works with a research component are not eligible to be submitted under this research output type but may be submitted as supporting material under Live Performance of Creative Works.
Subcategories of Recorded/Rendered Creative Works
|Film/Video||Film or video.|
|Performance||Performances (in music, dance, theatre, etc) that have been created specifically for a recorded medium.|
|Inter-arts||Recorded/rendered creative works, often experimental, produced in association with other researchers in other disciplinary fields.|
|Digital Creative Work||Creative 3D models, including digital outputs of architectural and design projects, computer programs, games and visual artworks|
|Website/Web Exhibition||These are eligible as recorded/rendered creative works if the eligible researcher is the creator of the creative works featured in the website. Curated web based exhibitions of the creative work of others must be submitted as Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events.|
|Other||Other recorded/rendered creative works not listed above|
Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and EventsThe Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events research output type is specifically aimed at research outputs produced by curators rather than artists. Exhibition catalogues written by curators should be submitted as Original Creative Works in the 'Textual Work' subcategory.
Where a curator is an eligible researcher, the curator may claim exhibitions, festivals and other events as research outputs. Artists may claim exhibitions of their original creative works under the Original Creative Works research output type, where the exhibition of the creative works is used as evidence that those works have been made publicly available.
Multiple exhibitions/events cannot be counted as multiple research outputs where the repeated exhibitions/events do not introduce a new research component to the work. For example, a touring exhibition can only be counted once. Multiple exhibitions/events may be counted where each subsequent exhibition/event introduces a new research component to the work that builds upon the initial research component of the original exhibition/event.
Recurring exhibitions and events may be submitted. For example, the Biennial of Sydney is a recurring event with each occurrence being unique rather than a repeat of the previous occurrence.
Subcategories of Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events
|Web Based Exhibition||The curation and/or production of an internet website presenting a collection of creative works where the internet is the medium of the exhibited works|
|Exhibition/Event||The curation and/or production of a collection of creative works exhibited together for the first time, in that particular arrangement, in a recognised gallery, museum, or event. this should be accompanied by a well researched publication that includes the date and location of the exhibition.|
|Festival||The curation of a festival bringing together innovative work or existing works in an informative format or through a theme that provides new perspectives and/or experiences.|
|Other||Curated or substantial public exhibitions and events that do not fit into the above subcategories of the Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events research output type.|
