Earlier this year, we announced that the ARC, Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Stats NZ and New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment will undertake a joint review of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC). ANZSRC is a statistical classification which is used in the measurement and analysis of research and development.

During consultations starting early next year, researchers, universities, industry and the Australian public will have the opportunity to contribute their feedback and help us to review the current classification. This will ensure our research classification reflects current practice and remains responsive to change in the sector.

We are currently developing ways for you to provide input to the review. As more information becomes available it will be placed on the ARC website.

If you would like to be kept directly informed of any ANZSRC Review developments please email us at ARC-ANZSRCReview@arc.gov.au to be added to our subscription list.
