  The Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2015 round is now complete. On 4 December 2015 the ARC released the results of the ERA 2015 round in the ERA National Report. This report is volume 1 in a series called The State of Australian University Research which can be found in ERA Reports

ERA would not be possible without the support the ARC receives from the sector. In addition to sector-wide consultations to help refine the ERA 2015 process and the work of all universities during the submission stages, there were 155 Research Evaluation Committee members and 1,300 peer reviewers from Australia and overseas appointed to conduct the evaluations. The ARC greatly appreciates all the time and effort that has been put into the ERA process by everyone involved. 

With three rounds of ERA now complete, this unique dataset covers all Australian university research outputs, staffing and activity from 2003 to 2013, and research income and research application data from 2006 to 2013. A comparison of the results from all 3 rounds can be found here.

Over the coming year the ARC will produce additional volumes based on analyses of this longitudinal data, which will provide further insights into the state of Australian university research.
