The Excellence in Research for Australia

The Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative will assess research quality using a combination of metrics and expert review by committees comprising experienced, internationally-recognised experts.

ERA is developed and managed by the
Australian Research Council (ARC) in conjunction with the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research.

The Library supports the University of Sydney ERA teams through:

  • the provision of subject specialist assistance at the discipline/cluster level,
  • advice on publications and metrics
  • general provision of repository and associated services in conjunction with the Research Office IRMA system to facilitate ERA assessment.

More details about Library assistance for the ERA assessment will be provided as the assessment process takes place.


More information about the ERA can be found at the University's Research Support site, or through the ARC site.
