Artistic Research and Creative Outputs in the RSS

The School of Creative Arts and the Creative Arts Practice research theme will host an open forum session about capturing artistic research and creative outputs in Trinity's Research Support System (RSS), which has just launched its new user interface at After a short introduction about the conceptual issues involved and the project's history from Nicholas Johnson, the new system will be shared in a demo by Kevin Kiely, with an afterword about impact by Giovanna Lima. The project to develop better capture of creative outputs has been developed by the research theme over several years, with the support of Niamh Brennan at the Trinity Library and IMBAS, the national forum for arts practice researchers; this is the first SCA community opportunity to see the progress made to date and to discuss where we would like to go next.

Kevin Kiely is the lead software developer on Trinity’s in-house developed CRIS system, the Research Support System (RSS), developed by IT Services in partnership with the Library. He played a key role in adding research outputs for Creative Arts to the RSS as well as developing a Creative Practice area for works and projects. The new RSS user interface is available at
