The process works as follows:
1. Fill out the form with as much information as you can. Don't worry if you can't complete all the fields, but provide as much as possible. Word counts are approximate. The copy you provide may be edited by the Content team.
2. On submission, the form goes to Andrea Cop who will review the information. Andrea may be in touch to clarify any details.
3. Once the information is agreed, it is passed on to the Digital Media team who will then design a draft page.
For examples of what this will look like, please see our current research project pages.
This form should be used when submitting content about a Research project to be published on the National Museums Scotland website.
Research projects are defined as:
Projects and activities, involving NMS collections and/or staff, students or research associates, which are either “an original investigation undertaken in order to gain knowledge and understanding” or “the creation, development and maintenance of the intellectual infrastructure of subjects and disciplines, in forms such as dictionaries, scholarly editions, catalogues and contributions to major research databases/Axiell” AND where these outputs are expected to be communicated (regardless of format of communication) beyond NMS to peer, academic or public such as new online content/ updated records, blog posts, publications, conference papers, press articles and exhibitions or by informing practice.
Note that some of the outputs of the research may also be unexpected/ not planned. They may be funded externally or internally.
For clarification the projects or activities could be:
Individual research (Internally or externally funded) activities in pursuit of furthering Museum strategies and objectives. The research performed by Museum colleagues will have predetermined the gap in the knowledge and the research questions or aims of the research.
Research collaboration – a jointly defined programme of mutually beneficial research. The research performed by Museum colleagues will have predetermined the gap in the knowledge and the research questions or aims of the research. The intellectual property will be from all collaborators. It is likely that Museum colleagues will gain new, previously unpublished, understanding and insights into a collection or fundamental aspect of the Museum.
Research facilitation – Museum colleagues facilitate access to collections or other resources, usually at NMCC. Usually involves NMS staff providing access to collections and insights on knowledge of collections to date. The visiting researcher may have funding external to their own institution.
Submissions go to Andrea Cop, Academic Liaison Manager, for review.
