The current degree requirements of the Performing Arts Research Center (Tutke) specify that a doctorate comprises artistic parts and a commentary subject to external examination. In the requirements, the commentary is defined as follows: “The commentary is aligned with the artistic parts, and it justifies the aims and methods of the doctoral research with respect to the research and practices of the field explored.” “The commentary shall demonstrate an ability to analyze, articulate, conceptualize and theorize the artistic designs of research, and to contextualize these in ways that are characteristic of artistic research.” “The doctoral research commentary shall present the aims, methods, structure and results of the research.” (Uniarts.fi 1 February 2017)
