  • Prioritise assessment of nominated A1’s and C1’s
  • Unclaimed publications will not be claimed on behalf of UON authors
  • Requests for further information to enable Category 1 assessment are made only within the NURO system Researchers must login and respond to requests for information within NURO.
  • Correct and/or add missing data for Category 1 research outputs only for bibliographic citation elements only (unless advised otherwise).
  • UON affiliated authors identified in the publication by-line will be the only authors identified. Publications with no UON affiliation are marked as declined in NURO.
