Research Catalogue

The Research Catalogue (RC) is an international, mixed media database for artistic research with around 12000 users. RC is run by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR) and is largely financed by its portal partners. Portal partners are for example organisations, institutions and journals in the artistic field. Stockholms konstnärliga högskola, The Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and VIS are all portal partners of RC.

All expositions presented in VIS have been created by the artists themselves with the help of RCs publishing tools. The expositions therefore vary in terms of design and are not expected to conform to set templates or specific visual format requirements. Anyone can publish an exposition on RC, and the contents are not judged or controlled in any other way than those which are outlined in the terms of use. On the other hand, the expositions that get presented in VIS have been carefully selected by the Editorial Committee and passed through a peer review process before being approved for publication.

The Research Catalogue server is operated at KTH's IT-department in Stockholm, and both the software and all data are stored at KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, with daily back-up procedures.

Authors retain the copyright and full publishing rights. Published expositions in VIS are using the Creative Commons licence CC BY-NC-ND. This license is restrictive and only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
