Joint NATSIPA and CAPA submission to Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) Review

Download – ANZSRC submission

We welcome this opportunity to contribute to the review of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC). In our submission, we focus on the inadequacy of codes relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research. We recommend, firstly, that at least one four-digit FoR code be created for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research; secondly, that six-digit codes be expanded in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholars; thirdly, that a “not elsewhere classified” code be created to capture any further gaps; and finally, that all Higher Degree by Research students have an opportunity to review their code.
