Research performance standards

The Research Performance Standards detail minimum expectations of performance in terms of numbers of research publications, amount of research income generated and numbers of Higher Degree by Research student completions, for each academic/research staff member at FedUni.  

These Standards are based on a benchmarking study of research performance expectations across the sector and have been endorsed by:

  • the Vice Chancellor’s Senior Team (VCST)
  • the University Research Committee, and
  • a combined meeting of the VCST and the Executive Deans
  • the Associate Deans (Research) from each Faculty.

The Research Performance Standards form the basis of the Composite Research Performance Index (CRPI), which is a basis for discussion between academics staff and their supervisors regarding research workload allocation. To calculate your CRPI, a Research Performance Calculator is available from the DVCRI Professor Leigh Sullivan.
