This is not intended to be a ‘fresh’ consultation, and so we will not be asked to suggest additional journals or to construct new lists of codes. Our input will be sought in a second phase, following current consultations with universities.

The ARC request points out that new journal recommendations must be made via staff in an Australian University Research Office now while phase one of the consultation is open (until 17 March 2017). Society members with recommendations for new journals should therefore make them in this way.

Any new journals must have an eligible journal article from an eligible institution within the ERA 2018 reference period for research outputs (1 January 2011 – 31 December 2016).
