Guidance on reporting research outputs for UON researchers and academic staff

Publications Eligible for Inclusion

From 2016 onwards, the Higher Education Research Data Collection no longer includes research publication counts. At UON, research publications will continue to be assessed using the HERDC specifications for A1, B1, C1 and E1 publications as these are still used for internal reporting purposes and will be used for the next Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation.

In addition, key criteria for all publications must be met.

 

Non-Category 1 Publications

From 2016 onwards, the Higher Education Research Data Collection no longer includes research publication counts. At UON, research publications will continue to be assessed using the HERDC specifications for A1, B1, C1 and E1 publications only. J1 Major creative works will also be included.

All non-Category 1 publications and outputs will be marked as declined within NURO. Citations for these will still display on research profiles.

This guide will be kept online for legacy purposes only.
