Information regarding NHMRC Research Grants for University of Newcastle Researchers

NHMRC Grants

Information regarding NHMRC Grants is distributed by the Research Office. To ensure that you receive up to date NHMRC grants information, please subscribe to our NHMRC mailing list. Please also review our ARC/NHMRC Grant Rounds Submission Procedures 2015 for essential information regarding NHMRC application submission.

Please note, the NHMRC has identified that publication and citation metrics such as Journal and Impact Factors, the previous ERA Ranked Journal List or person-centric citation metrics such as the H-index are ineligible, as stated in the Funding Rules: 10.3 Content and Format Requirements and The Guide to NHMRC Peer Review: Section 4.8 Use of Impact Factors and other Metrics.

In adherence to this, do not include publication and citation metrics of any type in your submissions to ensure eligibility.

The NHMRC is one of more than 400 organisations signed up to follow the recommendations from the' San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment' which states, "the impact factor must not be used as a surrogate measure of the quality of individual research articles, to assess an individual scientist's contributions, or in hiring, promotion, or funding decisions" (Science 340,787 (2013)).

RGMS

The Research Grants Management System (RGMS) is NHMRC's online system for lodging grant applications, managing the assessment of applications and managing grants once they are awarded.

RGMS has replaced Informed-Filler and NHMRC's former grants management system, Research Management Information System (RMIS).

Researchers use RGMS to lodge applications for all NHMRC funding schemes, except the NHMRC European Union Collaborative Health Research Grants.

Researchers who hold NHMRC grants will be able to manage their grants online using RGMS. All researchers involved in NHMRC's peer-review processes will also do this through RGMS.

Researchers need to populate the 'Profile' and 'CV' sections within RGMS and ensure it is kept up-to-date. RGMS automatically extracts relevant information into research funding applications and the CV can also be exported for other uses.

Access to RGMS is via the NHMRC website.
