|Type of Research:||Article|
Digital repositories are playing an increasingly significant role within Higher Education Institutions as a means of managing and promoting research activity. However, there remain substantial disciplinary differences in take up, and the research activity of the visual and applied arts community is notably under-represented. There are both technical and cultural reasons for this absence. Perhaps most obviously, institutional repositories have traditionally been tailored towards text-based outputs, and so have been less proficient at accommodating the more complex multimedia outputs associated with practice-led research. In addition, the specific working practices of arts researchers and their mediation between academic and professional art worlds tends to influence IPR needs and attitudes towards Open Access. Such factors all need to be engaged with in order to develop an effective model of an arts repository that is useful to this sector.
