The artist’s creative process is significant for the society. However, the extent to which society develops legal, market, and cultural policies to support the existence of artists is questionable. Arts-based research was first suggested during the late 20th century as a means for researching the creative process and subjective experiences of artwork. However, those methods are rarely used because of their inconsistency with the traditional paradigms of the scientific method. Creation and innovation cannot be measured empirically, or generalized, so arts based research should be integrated in humanities and social sciences because those methods introduce an aesthetic dimension to studies and allow researchers to explore phenomena that cannot be measured and interpreted objectively. The purpose of this is to identify the research methods used by artists pursuing their doctoral degree in the field of arts and design. A literature search was conducted in order to find and retrieve doctoral dissertations in the arts (N=31) that were completed within the past five years at the Academy of Fine Arts, University of Zagreb. The data reveals which methods artists use to describe and reflect on their creative process.
