Abstract

A PhD in science demands rigour, repeatability, and accountability. Epistemological, methodological, and ontological expectations flood the policies, procedures, and practice. One mode of doctorate has existed beyond the typical parameters of science: the artefact and exegesis PhD. Most commonly positioned in the creative arts and creative writing, how could this mode of doctorate be deployed in the sciences? This article, written by three academics who shared this innovative supervisory space, reveals the strengths and challenges that emerge from this innovative form and content for research. Our goal is to open out transformative spaces for doctoral education through diverse disciplines.
