Improving our digital landscape to enable world-leading research

We are improving our digital landscape to enable world-leading research through technology, continuous improvement and strong partnerships. By creating collaboration across our campuses, we aim to maximise positive outcomes for our research community.

Recent initiatives we've delivered

Enhanced ethics management tracking for ANU researchers

The University’s new Research Ethics Management System (REMS), launched in 2023, removes manual processes for ANU researchers and enables compliant assessment of research activities requiring human and/or animal ethics consideration.

HDR anti plagiarism solution

In June 2023, we launched iThenticate, a tool that helps higher degree research (HDR) candidates check for originality and ensure non-original work is cited appropriately before they submit their theses.

Performance dashboards

ANU Research Performance Dashboards provide a high-level review of key research metrics at University, College, and School levels. The dashboards draw from the latest information on publications, income, grants and HDR contained in University records. 


What's coming next?
