Publications - Reward for Quality Research Publications Scheme
The College developed this scheme to reward initiative and excellence through research by rewarding research publications in high quality journals that result from this. If you are a CBE academic member of staff with at least a fractional appointment of 40 percent then you are eligible to apply.
The scheme can be applied for anytime between the date of the acceptance advice provided by the publisher and up to one year after the in print publication date of the article. Further information on the scheme can be found in the scheme's guidelines below.
Please submit your application via email to the CBE Research Services Office using the information required noted in the 'How to apply by email' link below.
The Guidelines that apply to your publication are determined by the acceptance date from the publisher.
The business and economics publication list used is the ADBC16 list.
A copy of the ERA10 list* can be used if the publication is not in the ABDC Deans list and is for top non-business publications only, as per the Guidelines, and can be obtained from the CBE Research Services Office.
*Note: If publications for non-business articles are on outlets that are not one of these two lists and you consider that they may be at an equivalent top level then they will be considered on a case by case basis.

CBE Research Supervision Certificate and workshops
The College of Business and Economics expects all supervisors of research student to undertake training for this role. To this end the College offers the CBE Research Supervision Certificate for the completion of a series of workshops offered by the College on HDR supervision.
The goal of the certificate program is to support CBE's HDR supervisors in undertaking this role with the provision of relevant and practical information with a CBE context.
The program consists of two workshops conducted on campus (lead by an external Education expert with a CBE context provided by the College and usually run early in the year); and the two day CBE HDR Retreat (formerly the PhD Camp, held off campus usually during the first week of second semester’s mid-semester break).
Staff members do not have to complete all parts of the program within the same academic year.
While the content and times of the program may change each year the core format is as follows:
Workshop 1 Topic: Supervisory Relationships and Expectations with CBE context
Workshop 2 Topic: Milestones, Thesis Assessment and Examination with CBE context
CBE HDR Retreat Topic: A variety of topics are presented each year relevant for new
and experienced supervisors with CBE context
For further information regarding this program please contact the CBE Research Services Office
Further ANU support for HDR supervisors: TBC for 2017
As of 2016 ANU is offering a new supervision training workshop program that all ANU supervisors can attend. They are an expansion on the workshops in the CBE Supervision Certificate and can be attended individually or as a set. The College encourages all CBE supervisors to attend if possible.
