Creative works are assessed annually through the CSU Research Outputs Collection (ROC). In addition, the ERA assessment exercise includes creative works. This is an acknowledgement that research, and contribution to new knowledge, can manifest in other ways and forms in the creative arts. A variety of types of creative works are accepted for ERA. The recording and format of this sort of data is not straightforward and will evolve in CRO as the ARC establish more detailed criteria and a more definite position on how and what to measure.
Why submit creative works?

Copyright will need to be ascertained by the author of the creative work. The author may not own the copyright - it may, for example, be owned by the publisher of a text or the distributor of music. This can be followed up in negotiation with CRO. Items will only be loaded for public viewing if permission has been given by the copyright owner, otherwise they will be locked. Please contact the CRO Team if you have questions about this.
