Clarivate Analytics was selected in 2017 to become the Citation provider by the Australian Research Council (ARC) for the 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation. We will first highlight the data from the Web of Science that was made available by our team to Australian Higher Education Providers (HEP) for ERA. Then, we will focus on the solutions developed my Clarivate Analytics to support the Australian HEPs when preparing and analysing their data and prior to the submission to the Australian Research Council.
