Publication Collection

Publication Collection/AROC

The Annual Research Outputs Collection (AROC) is UNSW's internal process for collecting detailed, high-quality information on research outputs produced by UNSW researchers. It was established in 2016 to replace the annual HERDC publications collection.

The information collected as a part of AROC will be used as the basis for UNSW's ERA submission, to populate a range of university systems and profiles, and for a range of internal reporting activities.

Further Information:

Categories included in the AROC Collection are:

  • Book – Authored Research (A1)
  • Book Chapter – Commercial Publisher (B)
  • Journal Article – Refereed, Scholarly Journal (C1)
  • Conference Publication – Full Paper Refereed (E1)

UNSW Research Outputs System (ROS)

The Research Output System (ROS) records and manages UNSW’s research output publications.

ROS is UNSW's system for capturing and reporting research publications and outputs. It is designed to help reduce the time and effort spent on managing publication and research outputs across the University and offers a number of functionalities to support researchers at UNSW.

ROS finds and retrieves your publications from the web by searching a range of data sources. It collects these publication records into a single area for you to claim or reject. ROS searches a number of well known journal databases to bring in records of papers published by researchers. The sources currently searched are: Scopus, Web of Science, arXiv, PubMed, RePEc, dblp. As not everyone’s publications will appear in one of the online data sources, it is also possible to add publication records manually.

ROS then feeds information about your publications into a number of systems including the Research Gateway and a number of Faculty webpages.

To ensure your publications are up to date:

  • Log into ROS
  • Check ‘My Publications’ to ensure all pending items have been claimed or rejected
  • Check your previous year publications list to ensure it is complete
  • Check your HERDC tab to ensure all eligible publications are nominated
