The ASPERA Research Sub-Committee has launched its latest report: Measuring Excellence in Screen Production Research. A result of ideas, suggestions and feedback from the ASPERA community, the report describes how ASPERA recognises and measures research quality in screen production. The aim is to provide a set of guidelines and principles to assist those who undertake and evaluate creative practice research in screen production, to help determine the various levels of ‘excellence’ in the discipline. It can be used by researchers and research managers.
Measuring Excellence in Screen Production Research follows another report, Screen Production Research Reporting: An ASPERA Scoping Report, which was launched in 2017 and sought to help researchers and research managers understand how screen production outputs might be evaluated, and subsequently rewarded, as research outputs. Together, both reports are intended to be integral pedagogic tools for the ASPERA community as it grows confidence in screen production research and develops its scholarly and creative footprint.
