ARC ranking explained
In yesterday’s engagement and impact analysis, Susie Robinson was perplexed by the ARC allocating blended “high/low” scores for a handful of fields of research at individual universities. A learned reader advises this is due to two separate evaluations by the Australian Research Council, one for overall impact content, another for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research impact. The first-listed score is for the overall content, and that is what Dr Robinson’ used. So, the results stand, but the clarification is gratefully received!
