ERA is a comprehensive quality evaluation of all research produced in Australian universities against national and international benchmarks. The ratings are determined and moderated by committees of distinguished researchers, drawn from Australia and overseas.

ERA is based on expert review informed by a range of indicators. The indicators used in ERA include a range of metrics such as citation profiles which are common to disciplines in the natural sciences, and peer review of a sample of research outputs which is more broadly common in the humanities and social sciences.

ACU has been recognised by the Australian Research Council for outstanding research in a range of key disciplines. In 2015 ACU performed very strongly across a diverse range of disciplines and was awarded the following results in the Excellence in Research (ERA):
