Last year the ARC issued a consultation paper for a review of its performance metrics, Excellence for Research in Australia and Engagement and Impact, (CMM August 20)
But the agency announced submissions would only be released, “when the review is completed” (CMM October 15).
This struck CMM as a very bad idea indeed and accordingly reported all of those we were sent.
Now, a Learned Reader reports, the ARC has released most but not all of the submissions received, with 38 of 112 under wraps. If the council is holding to its original position, the review must be ready to go.
If so, it will be a scene-stealer. The new Excellence for Research in Australia performance review is scheduled for release before July.
