Our aim is to realise an equitable landscape for all research, whatever the discipline, where we move beyond the “other” of non-text outputs, recognising practice research and enabling it to be valued as equal to papers, publications and monographs, and ensuring that it is captured and preserved, is made discoverable and can be re-used.
This scoping project has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) under their Scoping future data services for the arts and humanities call.
Our approach is based on building on existing software, standards, materials using open research practices.
We plan to build and expand upon the work we have already done – starting with the existing collaboration between Westminster, Haplo (a division of Cayuse) and Jisc and bringing in Kings College London – and the British Library – recognising that practice research is carried out beyond universities.
There are three strands:
- Metadata and Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) landscape
- Creating an intersectional Practice Research Community of Practice
The project team, is led by Jenny Evans (PI), Prof Neal White (CoI) and the Scholarly Comms team at Westminster (Nina Watts, Holly Ranger and project support from Joshua Mead) and includes Adam Vials Moore (CoI) Jisc, Prof Helen Bailey (CoI) (Kings College London) and Rachael Kotarski (CoI) British Library and technology partners Cayuse (Taylor Mudd and Richard Forrest).
