In a Higher Education context where originality in research is increasingly valorised, what place is there for explicitly re-presentational practices such as scholarly editing and curating? At first glance, the REF2014 landscape would seem favourable. The panel guidelines recognise "scholarly editions", "databases" and "electronic resources" as outputs, and promote "the creation of archival or specialist collections to support the research infrastructure". Edition and curation also produce tangible results—including printed and digital texts, catalogues and exhibitions—that can impact beyond the academy, preserving and presenting materials for a general audience. But what is the value of these activities and how can it be measured?
