The Excellence in Research for Australia Initiative was announced in February 2008, and has replaced the Research Quality Framework (RQF).

The Library provides a range of resources that can be used to measure the quality and impact of research:

These pages have been developed by Flinders Library staff , and can assist in answering your questions, such as:

  • am I publishing in a quality journal?
  • does my journal have an Impact Factor?
  • how do I find the relative ranking of a journal within a particular field?
  • how many times has my publication been cited?
  • how do I  track when each of my publications has been cited?
  • who else is researching in my area and where they are publishing?
  • who are the leading researchers in my field?

In addition, you can contact your Liaison Librarian for help to:

  • identify the best sources for your needs
  • search those resources
  • identify quality publications for your current research.
