Creative Works as Research are a key element of Victoria University's standing as a research institution active in the creative arts.

The Creative Works as Research Collection retains information about creative works of research significance across VU. It directly recognizes and enables the rewarding of creative practitioners at VU engaged in research.

2015 Creative Works as Research Collection

The 2015 Creative Works as Research Collection (CWRC) has commenced.

The CWRC focusses on outputs that were publicly available in 2014 and meet the criteria specified in the new Creative Works as Research Guidelines, which have just been released and are available in the VU Central Policy Register.

The new Guidelines contain more comprehensive categories, in line with Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), including the recognition of non-traditional research output types relating to creative research works.

A new Measure of Research Activity (MORA) calculation matrix will apply to eligible creative works outputs from 2014.

Staff and students producing Creative Works which meet the requirements of Creative Works as Research Guidelines are required to submit an online application form and provide the necessary supporting documentation.
