Australasian Epidemiological Association News

The AEA recently called for member feedback in relation to the ANZSRC Review Consultation Draft. The proposed changes to both the Fields of Research and Socio-Economic Objectives classifications. Several AEA members responded to this call, and we submitted a response to the ARC on behalf of the Association. The AEA response was restricted to the Health Sciences section of the review.

The AEA welcomed the addition of epidemiology as a separate group in the Fields of Research. This addition will enable us to begin quantifying the volume of epidemiological research undertaken in Australia and New Zealand.

A copy of the submission, with details of specific changes suggested, is now available under Submissions on the AEA website and via the link below.
