Research Systems and Performance

In recent years there has been increasing focus on the evaluation of research and research performance, in Australia and worldwide.

Research activity is measured and analysed in a number of areas, including

  • research staffing numbers, 
  • research outputs (publications and creative works) and citations, 
  • research grants and other income, 
  • research training (particularly research higher degrees and career development)
  • and research impact and engagement.

The Research Systems and Performance (RSP) team look after the collection, showcasing, analysis and reporting of the University's research activity information.

The team coordinates the University's submissions for Commonwealth reporting on research activity (including the annual HERDC and the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) and Engagement and Impact submissions).

It undertakes strategic and continuous improvement projects related to research activity and provides reports to the Institute of Advanced Studies on various aspects of research activity.

The RSP team also administers the University's research information systems, RIS (Pure and SRS) and other research activity databases.
