Research Active

To be considered research active, the member must have accrued a minimum of 3 research points in the previous 3 years.

Calculation of Research Points

Research points are calculated as below. To be considered research active, a member may accrue points in any category or mix of categories.

Publications and/or creative outputs Research income HDR Completions Esteem Measures

A1 = 5 points

B1 = 1 point

C1 = 1 point

E1 = .5 points (1.5 point maximum)

J1 = 1 to 5 points

$20,000 p.a. in any category of externalresearch grant income, weighted according to percentage of CI contribution

= 2 points per $20k (Cat 1)

= 1 point per $20k

1 principal supervision to successful completion of a PhD = 1 point.

1 principal supervision to successful completion of a Masters by Research = 0.5 point.

1 externally awarded prize, award, or other esteem measure recognised in ERA

= 3 points (maximum)
