This guide provides information for University of Newcastle academic and research staff about the collection of research outputs associated with the University of Newcastle, primarily for the annual Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC).
Data about the following publication types are collected and reported to the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science, Research and Tertiary Education(DIISRTE). This results in funding allocations returned to the University.
Eligible publication types collected for the HERDC process must meet specific criteria and include:
- Book chapters
- Peer reviewed journal articles and
- Peer reviewed, fully published conference papers
The 2012 HERDC Research Publications Collection is handled jointly by staff from the Library and Research Services, with Research Services having ultimate responsibility for the submission to DIISRTE. Library staff have responsibility for the entry of all University of Newcastle affiliated publications into the Callista Research Database. This data populates individual online researcher profiles.

This refers to research outputs not affiliated with the University of Newcastle. To maintain a complete researcher profile, non-affiliated research outputs and publications can be entered into Research Portfolio Manager.
Final deadline for reporting 2012 publications is Friday 19 April 2013
Lists of 2012 publications entered to date are currently being distributed.
Publications staff are continuing to enter 2012 publications into the research database.
If you have already emailed details of your publications, you do not need to send them again.
Delays with entry of your publication usually indicate that staff have been unable to verify the publication against all the HERDC criteria. This may mean that additional information is required such as evidence of peer review or that the Library is sourcing a copy of the publication.
You can send any hard copies via internal mail to Research Publications, Level 2, Auchmuty Library.
