'Who's Afraid of Artistic Research? On measuring artistic research output'

Dieter Lesage

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Insofar as the official recognition of artistic research will be made to depend on the acceptance by artistic researchers of outrageous criteria of research output evaluation, dressed up in analogy to scientific research output criteria which seem to suit the natural sciences, but not the humanities, artistic researchers in search for the recognition of a pluralist concept of research that would include artistic research as well may find allies among their colleagues working in the field of the humanities in general and cultural studies in particular, many of whom also struggle with reductionist criteria of output evaluation. Many researchers in the humanities in general and in cultural studies in particular contest the idea that articles in international, peer-reviewed academic journals are to be considered as the most important academic publication format, as is the case in the natural sciences.
