2014 HERDC specifications

The Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) is a dataset that records research income earned and valid publications published by Australia’s Table A and B Higher Education Providers (HEPs). Data is collected annually by the Department of Education directly from HEPs. The purpose of the HERDC Specification document is to provide guidance for HEPs, and for auditors, on the specific content and data requirements in providing research income and research publications data.
