The Australian Research Council (ARC) announced this week that Scopus will provide citation information for the full 'Excellence in Research for Australia' (ERA) initiative.
“Citation analysis is one of the most widely used bibliometric tools for assessing the impact of scholarly research, and as such, it was crucial that an outstanding and appropriate citation provider be chosen for the full ERA initiative. Scopus is recognised as the largest abstract and citation database of research literature."
All JCU research outputs must be deposited in ResearchOnline@JCU by 15 March 2010 to be included in the ERA submission.
More information - ERA Initiative.
More about ERA at JCU is available from the Library and Computing Services website.
