ERA submission guidelines, discipline matrix and technology pack released

22 September 2011

This pack, available now, provides information critical to understanding and participating in ERA ('Excellence in Research for Australia') 2012, a mandatory government reporting exercise that measures research excellence across all Australian universities.

The submission guidelines in the pack detail the rules and processes for the submission phase. The 'Discipline Matrix' shows the low-volume threshold for each discipline, the discipline cluster groupings and the discipline-specific indicators. The 'Technology Pack' provides technical instructions for institutions to prepare and submit their electronic ERA submissions.

The ERA submission stage opens on Monday 5 March 2012. View the guidelines, matrix and technology pack at the Australian Research Council (ARC) website. Visit the Research Support website for more information about ERA 2012.
