|Draft ERA 2015 Journal and Conference Lists
3 February 2014
Draft ERA 2015 Journal and Conference Lists
21 March 2014
The Draft ERA 2015 Journal and Conference Lists are designed for the sole purpose of supporting ERA 2015. The lists define outlets that are eligible for submission by institutions in ERA 2015, that is, scholarly, peer reviewed outlets that publish original research and will be active during the ERA 2015 reference period for research outputs.
The journal and conference lists form an integral part of the ERA evaluation process. The lists provide components that will be used in the ERA 2015 methodology, including: defining the eligible Fields of Research (FoR) codes that research outputs may be assigned during the submission phase; and defining the outlets from which the citation benchmarks are derived.
To contribute to the public consultation, you must use the ERA 2015 Journal and Conference Interface
The ERA 2015 Journal and Conference Interface (JACCI) allows users to:
- download a spreadsheet of the Draft ERA 2015 Journal and/or Conference Lists;
- comment on an existing outlet; and/or
- add new journals or conferences.
Please note: all comments and recommendations must be made through the JACCI interface.
Stages of the Consultation
In preparation for the ERA 2015 round, the ARC is reviewing Draft ERA 2015 Journal and Conference Lists. This process occurs in three phases, the first being a public consultation and consolidation of the suggested changes. In the second phase, peak bodies and disciplinary groups will review the consolidated list from phase 1. The peak bodies and academic groups will be responsible for making recommendations to the ARC regarding the final determination of the ERA 2015 outlets. In the third phase, the ARC will review comments and finalise the draft outlets lists.
