Release of the panel-specific guidelines for the PBRF 2018 Quality Evaluation

29 July 2016

We are pleased to announce the release of the panel-specific guidelines for the Performance-based Research Fund (PBRF) 2018 Quality Evaluation.

The 13 PBRF peer review panels have developed panel-specific guidelines to support tertiary education organisations and their staff members in the development and submission of Evidence Portfolios for the PBRF 2018 Quality Evaluation. The guidelines provide specific advice related to the subject areas to be assessed by each of the 13 peer review panels.

We thank the members of the initial cohort of the peer review panels for their work on developing the guidelines, and all those who participated in the public consultation and review process.

The panel-specific guidelines are supplementary to the main guidelines for the 2018 Quality Evaluation, which were released on 30 June 2016. The guidelines are being released in 2016 to provide information and guidance well in advance to all those involved in the preparation for the 2018 Quality Evaluation. 

You can access the panel-specific guidelines on the PBRF Resources and publications page of this website.

A reminder that nominations for the final cohort of panel members will be accepted up until 26 February 2018. You can find information on the nomination process on the
