Where to Publish
Publish in journals that will maximise the number of people who read and cite your research. Find out which journals are cited the most in our Journal Citation Reports Database.
Make your thesis famous by publishing it online in the Australasian Digital Theses Program.
HERDC and ERA
After you submit your journal article, conference paper, book chapter or other publication into the Research and Innovation Office’s Research Master for HERDC (Higher Education Research Data Collection), the Library digitally stores it for the Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) process.
When it was first introduced, the ERA produced lists of ranked journals (A*, A, B, C) but these rankings are no longer used, and there is no extra credit gained from the ERA for you or your institution by publishing in journals ranked highly in these lists. An easy place to find (current, unranked) lists of ERA journals by subject area (known as Fields of Research in the ERA) is John Lamp's ERA site. The (now outdated) rankings can be seen in the 2010 Comprehensive Final Lists section of that site.
If we can clear copyright, we also make it available in our online repository UTSePress, which increases the visibility and impact of your research by allowing people to find it in search engines such as Google Scholar, as well as through the Library Catalogue.
Find out how often your articles are cited by others and demonstrate the impact of your research by using citation analysis.
