Creative arts academics in Hong Kong have been facing enormous challenges in recent years, including debates surrounding ‘what counts as research’ and ‘what constitutes scholarship’, as well as the new requirements of the upcoming Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2014. This chapter provides an overview of the research support system in the increasingly competitive higher education sector of Hong Kong and the key criteria governing the assessment of academic staff’s ‘non-traditional’ or creative output in music and visual arts. It also discusses recent developments in research training with examples of research projects undertaken by academics and doctoral students in the creative arts within a multi-disciplinary and teacher education context in a predominantly Chinese society.
