The CREATe Working Paper series is an open access resource designed to rapidly disseminate original research by CREATe investigators and associated scholars to the wider community. In addition to ensuring that new research becomes immediately available to the public in this rapidly-changing field, the series captures digital outputs which are not traditionally suited to the academic format but which nevertheless serve as anchor points for discussion, debate and advancement of understanding.
New additions to the series are made constantly throughout the year. Types of papers published include 1) specially commissioned pieces on topical issues related to intellectual property and the creative economy; 2) scoping reviews of relevant literature and methodologies; 3) digital transcripts of live conferences and workshops; and 4) research outputs which may include pre-prints of articles or papers under development by CREATe affiliated researchers.
The Editorial Board of the CREATe Working Paper series is headed up by Professor Philip Schlesinger and consists of a group of 15 senior faculty and future research leaders. The Editorial Board makes selection decisions about CREATe-funded research to feature in the series and evaluates unsolicited submissions for further external review. For more information about the Working Paper series and submission guidelines, consult the Guidelines for Authors page.
The CREATe Working Paper series is committed to public, open access. For that reason, the series is made available directly below and permanently archived on Zenodo.

The website category is the most interactive of all NHD categories. A website should reflect your ability to use website design software and computer technology to communicate your topic’s significance in history. Your historical website should be a collection of web pages, interconnected by hyperlinks, that presents both primary and secondary sources and your historical analysis. To engage and inform viewers, your website should incorporate interactive multimedia, text, non-textual descriptions (e.g., photographs, maps, music, etc.), and interpretations of sources. To construct a website, you must have access to the Internet and be able to operate appropriate software and equipment.
Websites can display materials online, your own historical analysis as well as primary and secondary sources. Websites are interactive experiences where viewers can play music, look at a video or click on different links. Viewers can freely navigate and move through the website. Websites use color, images, fonts, documents, objects, graphics and design, as well as words, to tell your story.
- Research your topic first. Examine primary and secondary sources. From this research, create your thesis. This will be the point that you want to make with your historical website.
- Narrow in on the content of your website. Decide what information you want to incorporate in your web pages, such as any photos, primary documents, or media clips you may have found. You should be sure to have plenty of supporting information for your thesis.
- Create your website with the NHD Site Editor.Click here to begin the registration process.
- Consider organization and design.
- Keep it simple: don’t waste too much time on bells and whistles. Tell your story and tell it straight.
- Borrow ideas from other websites: find design elements that work and imitate them on your website. Just remember to give credit where credit is due.
- Make sure every element of your design points back to your topic, thesis, and/or time period. There should be a conscious reason for every choice you make about color, typeface, or graphics.
PLEASE NOTE – If you converted your website to save from previous contest years, you will need to use a new email address to create an account for the 2015 contest. The email address is optional and only used to recover passwords in the event of forgotten or lost passwords.
With so many complaints in the past regarding the Scrib.d element on NHD Weebly, we have removed this element and recommend students post their bibliographies and process papers as PDF files on their websites, using the ‘File’ element under ‘Media’. Please visit the following website created by former NHD participant, Christopher Su, for helpful tips and guides: NHD Website Resources
If you have any further questions please email IT@nhd.org with your current URL and login information. If you have lost your login information, cannot convert your standard Weebly to NHD Weebly, or need an account recovered please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A process paper is a description of how you conducted your research, developed your topic idea, and created your entry. The process paper must also explain the relationship of your topic to the contest theme. For more information on the Process Paper and other rules, review the Contest Rule Book (English) / Contest Rule Book (Spanish).
