Non-traditional research outputs

Non-traditional research outputs (NTROs) are counted as important research objects in several reporting and benchmarking exercises. It is therefore important to track NTROs the same as other research outputs.

NTROs are listed in the ERA Submission Guidelines and are important to include in ROS for the Annual Research Output Collection.

Consider minting a DOI to make sharing and tracking your works easier.

Eligible research output types include the following types of NTRO:

  • original creative works live performance of creative works
