Abstract

This presentation provides an overview of work conducted at the University of Westminster (UK) to improve the discoverability and reusability of practice based arts research outputs and data.

After setting out a few of the current challenges and barriers to representing and sharing practice research outputs and data in existing scholarly communications infrastructure, the presentation shares recommendations to improve repository templates and persistent identifier schema, as idenitifed by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UKRI) funded project ‘Practice Research Voices: Scoping the Open Library of Practice Research’ (PI Jenny Evans; grant number: AH/W007622/1).

At the same time as improving discoverability, however, we also need to improve re-usability. With this in mind, the second section of the presentation presents two initiatives to embed planning-for-sharing-and-re-use in research design guidance and training at the University of Westminster, with a focus on encouraging good data documentation practices: the new Handbook for Practice Research PhDs; and a Theory of Change for Research Design.
