2014 Collection - Now Open!
The Higher Education Research Data Collection for 2014 research publications is now open!
For the purposes of external and internal funding formulae, income and publications can only be considered if they fall within the definition of 'Research' as provided by the Commonwealth Department of Education. For full details refer to the 2014 Higher Education Research Data Collection - Specifications document available from the Department of Education website.
Published outputs of research are important records of research activity and are used by the government and the University to measure the intensity and quality of research performance at Griffith.
The University holds a database of all research publications and creative arts outputs produced by its academic staff and research students. As part of the annual Department of Education HERDC, the University is required to report on all research publications published by staff and students within a calendar year.
The HERDC categories include authored books (A1), book chapters (B1), refereed journal articles (C1), refereed conference papers (E1) and other research publication categories eligible for the Excellence in Research for Australia exercise.
The collection of research publications is important for a number of reasons:
- The Department of Education uses it to help calculate central performance-based funding allocations
- The University uses it to allocate research-related funds to Faculties and Schools
- It helps to build reliable staff research and scholarship profiles and areas of expertise
- It enables staff to maintain a dynamic bibliography of their work and enhances the University collection
- It informs our annual research reports and research performance profile
