Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) Review: submissions due by 7 June

The Australian Research Council is conducting a review of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) to ensure that the research classifications reflect current practice and remain responsive to changes in the sector. Australian and New Zealand researchers will be familiar with the core ANZSRC classification types that inform funding, policy and quality evaluation: Type of Activity (ToA), Fields of Research (FoR), and Socio-Economic Objective (SEO).

The discussion paper produced to stimulate public response invites feedback on the overall classification structure as well as specific categories contained within the ToA, FoR and SEO including addition, removal, merger or splitting of current categories. For many in our sector this may provide an opportunity to comment on the much discussed challenges presented by the combination of Performing Arts and Creative Writing in FOR 1904.

The discussion paper and details on how to submit responses to its questions are available at:
