Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA)
Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) is an independent assessment coordinated by the Australian Research Council (ARC). It is designed to assess research quality in Australia's higher education institutions by measuring the research performance of universities.
ERA assesses research at the discipline level and uses the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Field of Research (FoR) Codes at the 4-digit level to categorise research.
Southern Cross University's research in nine key areas has been given the highest possible classification of 'well above world standard' in the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2015 national report.
'Well above world standard' (ERA rating of 5)
'Above world standard' (ERA rating of 4)
'World standard' (ERA rating of 3)
