• employ accessible style with explanation of terms
• cross reference project proposal with all other sections
• demonstrate thorough understanding of the context
• identify and explain research network
• ensure structure is seamless and easy to follow
• interlink track record with proposal
• draft by cycling through critical mentoring/reviewing
• use ROPE to explain career/output interruptions
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
ROPE
“Research Opportunity is designed to provide assessors with
an accurate appreciation of career history against a timeline of
years since graduation from highest educational qualification.
Assessors will recognise research opportunities and
experience in the context of employment situations including
those outside academia and the research component of
employment conditions. Periods of unemployment, or any
career interruptions for child birth, carers’ responsibilities,
misadventure, or debilitating illness will be taken into account.
Access to research mentoring and other research support
facilities and any other relevant aspects of career experience or
opportunities for research will complete the considerations”.

Medical Research Policy
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
ARC Medical Research Policy
The ARC does not consider ‘hypotheticals’ or provide pre-eligibility rulings as
per ARC policy: http://www.arc.gov.au/applicants/md_research.htm
“If a proposal is deemed to be potentially ineligible, the proposal is sent for
consideration by the ARC eligibility committee. The relevant administering
organisation is advised when a proposal is identified as potentially ineligible.
The administering organisation may provide further information if required. All
proposals, regardless of their eligibility status, undergo the same peer review
process.” (http://www.arc.gov.au/general/assessment_process.htm)
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
ARC Medical Research Policy (2)
‘Human health conditions—Pertaining to diseases (as defined above),
syndromes, pathological conditions, injuries, signs, symptoms, problems
and/or conditions that generally lead to contact with, or utilisation of,
health services.
Intervention/al—Includes interventions designed to understand and/or
change human health conditions, such as:
•
clinical or pre-clinical trials in human participants
•
the collection and/or use of body organs, tissues or fluids e.g. skin,
blood, urine, saliva, hair, bones, tumour and other biopsy specimens or
exhaled breath
•
behavioural interventions; or
•
dietary interventions.’
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Ineligible Medical Research
•
‘research with human health and/or medical goals, including research on the
understanding, aetiology, diagnosis, monitoring, management or treatment of
physical or mental disease or other health conditions in humans; OR,
•
research involving the use or development of animal models of human health
conditions, or the use of animals for the development or testing of therapeutic
goods (including devices) or procedures, for the purpose of better
understanding human health or developing treatments for human health
conditions; OR,
•
interventional research in humans, particularly clinical or pre-clinical trials of
therapeutic goods (including devices), or research aiming to modify the health
of the human participants; OR,
•
the use or development of equipment, facilities, tools, games, devices, smart
phone applications or other items to understand, diagnose, monitor, manage
or treat human health conditions.’
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Ineligible Medical Research (2)
‘If the ARC determines that a proposal is at risk of not being considered
by either agency (ARC or NHMRC), the ARC reserves the right to deem
such a proposal eligible for assessment.
Recognising that an integrated research project or programme may
sometimes include a small element of research not supported under this
policy, the ARC may, but is not obliged to, deem such a proposal
eligible for assessment provided the proposal predominantly comprises
eligible research as set out in this policy.
Proposals deemed ineligible cannot be recommended or approved for
funding under the Australian Research Council Act 2001.’

Medical Research
Example 7
This project will explore the history of influenza in Australia, investigating how the memory of
the 1918-9 epidemic has shaped public memory and concern about influenza as well as
popular remedies and prevention approaches. Using an analysis of all available print media
and literature from 1918 to the present, this project aims to understand how language,
reporting and dramatization in literature may influence public understanding or opinion.
Lessons are likely to be able to be drawn from this research to inform contemporary and
future public health campaigns.
Eligibility Comment: This example is eligible for ARC support as it aims to understand how
historical literature and other media can influence public memory and concern, using a
human health condition as an example. This proposal would not fit the criteria specifically
listed under the “eligible” section of the Policy, noting that it is significantly not within the
scope of the policy, as referenced in Policy footnote 1, i.e. that “other research not covered
by this policy may also be eligible for ARC support.”

Medical Research (2)
Example 8
Music has long been seen as beneficial for health, both in preventing disease by improving
well-being and in relieving the symptoms of health conditions. This research will examine
the effect of learning to play the violin on the health of a cohort of people who have had a
cancer diagnosis in the last two years and are either currently undergoing or have recently
completed treatment.
Eligibility Comment: This example is not eligible for ARC support as it aims to modify a
human health condition (2a) by using learning the violin as an intervention (2c).

Assessment Process
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Disciplinary Panels
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process: Overview
•
ARC staff and Executive Directors (EDs) assess eligibility etc., but do
not decide which proposals should be funded
•
Proposals are generally assigned by EDs to two College of Experts
(CoE) members on each Disciplinary Panel who act as General
Assessors and at least two External Assessors by the College of
Experts
•
All proposals are assessed against the selection criteria
•
CoE Disciplinary Panels meet to moderate assessments and to make
final recommendations about fundable projects
•
Under the ARC Act all recommendations must be approved by the
Minister
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process:
ARC College of Experts
• ARC CoE play a key role in identifying research excellence, moderating
external assessments and recommending fundable proposals
• CoE assist the ARC in recruiting and assigning External Assessors and in
implementing peer review reforms in established and emerging disciplines as
well as interdisciplinary areas
• CoE comprises experts of international standing drawn from: the Australian
research community : higher education, industry and public sector research
organisations
• CoE nominations are approved by the ARC CEO for appointments of one to
three years
• Since 2012 the CoE has been enlarged, the number of schemes it assessed
increased and the membership rotated between meetings
• Previously the entire CoE sat at the April and August meetings, and separate
Selection Advisory Committees met for specific schemes, e.g. Future
Fellowships
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process: General Assessors
•
General Assessors are members of the CoE or a scheme specific
Selection Advisory Committee (SAC) comprising expert members
•
General Assessors take into consideration
a) the ratings and comments provided by Detailed
Assessors
b) the applicant’s rejoinder
c) the wide range of their other assessments
d) assign their own ratings
•
Once all assessments have been finalised and submitted to the
ARC, General and Detailed Assessments and Rejoinders are
considered by the CoE at the Disciplinary Panel meeting
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process: Peer Review
• External Assessors evaluate small range of proposals within
their field of research expertise
• CoEs assess proposals within the context of
(a) a very wide range of proposals
(b) the External Assessments
(c) the Rejoinder
(d) broad range of disciplinary expertise
• Final assessment made at CoE Panel meeting
• Robust conflicts of interest processes to ensure conflicts are
managed and transparent
• Provision of a right of reply to assessments (in most ARC
schemes)
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process:
Assignment Information 1
• The ARC has completely redesigned the way that CoE and External
Assessors are matched to a proposal for assessment purposes
• Multiple areas of the proposal are mined for a set of keywords and
presented to the person completing the assignments as a word cloud
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process:
Assignment Information 2
• This information is then matched to information stored
against a potential assessor’s profile and presented in a
similar word cloud
• The most appropriate person is then selected and assigned
to the proposal to assess
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process: Rejoinder
•
Where the ARC seeks External Assessments, applicants are
given the opportunity to submit a Rejoinder
•
The Rejoinder process allows applicants to respond to
assessment comments made by External Assessors
•
Rejoinders are not viewed by External Assessors but are
considered by an CoE Discplinary Panel or SAC when deciding
on the final recommendation for a Proposal
•
Timeframes for rejoinders are typically up to ten working days
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Assessment Process:
CoE Selection Meeting
•
The CoE Disciplinary Panel Meeting is the final face-to-face
meeting of the CoE and is the conclusion of the peer review
process
•
The CoE Panels meet to consider which proposals to recommend
to the ARC for funding, and recommended budgets for those
proposals
•
All recommendations are given to the ARC CEO, who then makes
recommendations to the Minister
•
All funding decisions are made by the Minister under the ARC Act

Research Opportunity
• The ARC is committed to ensuring all eligible
researchers have fair access to competitive funding
through the National Competitive Grants Programme.
• The ARC considers that Research Opportunity
comprises two separate elements:
• Career experiences (relative to opportunity)
• Career interruptions
• The ROPE Statement is online at:
• http://www.arc.gov.au/arc-research-opportunity-andperformance-evidence-rope-statement
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Carer’s responsibility
“Carer's responsibility for a child and maternity or
partner/parental leave can have an effect on a person's
research opportunity and performance evidence above
and beyond any actual time taken as leave. In recognition
of this, under subsection D7.4.4 of the Funding Rules, the
ARC will allow a DECRA Candidate in the DE17 round to
claim an Eligibility Exemption of two years per dependent
child (inclusive of carer's responsibility and any maternity
or partner/parental leave). (Without providing justification)
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
Carer’s responsibility
“A person who has taken more than two years off to care
for a dependent child, or who otherwise believes they are
entitled to a greater than two year extension, would need
to justify their claim when submitting an eligibility
exemption request. FAQ 1.25 above does not cap career
interruptions for carers of dependent children to two years
per child. It does however allow carers of dependent
children to claim up to a two year career interruption
without justification”.
Web: arc.gov.au I Email: [email protected]
DECRA commitments
•
The DECRA Recipient is expected to spend a minimum of 20 per
cent of her/his time on activities at the Administering Organisation,
and 80 per cent of her/his time on research activities related to the
proposed DECRA.(D7.2.2 and D7.2.3)
•
The DECRA Recipient may not engage in other professional
employment for the duration of the DECRA without prior approval
from the ARC under subsection D7.2.6. (D7.2.4)
•
The DECRA Recipient may spend up to 0.2 (20 per cent of Full
Time Equivalent (FTE)) of her/his time annually on teaching
activities. The DECRA will not be extended to accommodate any
periods of teaching. Supervision of honours or postgraduate
students is not included in this limit. (D7.2.9)
