Studies in Human Society

Studies in Human Society (16) is a broad-based FoR which necessitates the formation of multidisciplinary teams, and the ability to prepare materials on a diversity of topics.  For the current ERA period, the strongest performance within FOR 16 has been across the subgroups of 1608 Sociology and 1604 Urban and Regional Planning, with emerging strength in 1605 Policy and Administration. Research outputs for the 2015 ERA period have declined slightly from the 2012 benchmark due largely to the reduction in staff associated with this code. However output rate is increasing and outlook for Studies in Human Society going forward is strong with a solid core of researchers now established at CQUniversity.
