The Research Performance team works with several other areas of the University to collect, analyse, and report research performance data. The team is involved in the planning and implementation of initiatives related to research data analysis and reporting, and responsible for ensuring the consistency and accuracy of statistical and other research performance data that is provided to the University’s executive; the research community; and relevant external agencies.

Research performance data in UQ Reportal

Internally, Research Performance data is made available to the University community via the Reportal. The data available includes Research Project Grants and Funding Partners, HERDC Research Income, Publication Outputs, HDR Student Load and Completions, and Academic Staff FTE.

The Planning & Business Intelligence team maintain the Reportal and can facilitate access and introductory training to using Reportal.

The standard Research Reports in Reportal are maintained by analysts in the Research Performance team. We run regular staff development training for those who would like a better understanding of research performance data available in Reportal. The Research Performance Reporting course, primarily for research administrators, will enable participants to:

  • Understand the research universes and research performance data available in UQ Reportal.
  • Learn more about the major institutional reporting initiatives.
  • Find and use standard reports related to research performance.
  • Become familiar with the role and services of the Research Performance team.

The team is also happy to discuss tailored training for your team and to answer specific questions about the research data universes or reports. To discuss opportunities and reporting requirements relevant to your organisational area or provide feedback on the Research Reports, contact
