Research Performance

Each year Australian Catholic University collects details of research publications and other research outputs, funded and unfunded research projects for the preceding year.
The collection focuses on data for:

  • the Commonwealth Government for HERDC (*)
  • the evaluation of ACU’s research through the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative (*)
  • the Commonwealth Government for the Sustainable Research Excellence (SRE) Research Hours Data Collection (*)
  • the biennial survey by the Australian Bureau of Statistic (ABS) on research and experimental development in Australia
  • the ACU Research Bank to make a publicly available record of ACU research activities
  • ACU to measure and benchmark our research performance.

(*) these data determine the amount of research funding received by ACU under research programs managed by the Commonwealth Government.
