The Australian Research Council’s national report on Excellence in Research for Australia, 2010, has been released, providing an assessment of the quality of research conducted in Australian universities.

The report, three years in preparation, was produced as an element of the Government’s agenda for the reform of Australia’s higher education system, outlined in its policy document Transforming Australia’s Higher Education System (2009), and its innovation agenda, expressed in Powering Ideas: An Innovation Agenda for the 21st Century (2009). The assessment was undertaken by eight Research Evaluation Committees, appointed by the Australian Research Council  (ARC) and comprising a total of 149 members.

Data was submitted to the ARC by 40 higher education institutions on 330,000 research outputs from over 55,000 researchers across eight discipline clusters and 157 research fields.
