The revised Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC 2020) has been released on the ABS and Stats NZ websites.

This update makes changes in response to research sector needs, using a robust process and extensive consultation.

The ARC intends to use the revised classification in ERA 2023 and EI 2024, and will consult with universities to determine when to commence use of the classification for NCGP processes.

We thank all of the universities, discipline bodies, researchers and other experts who contributed their time and input to the review.
