Contribution of Non-salaried Staff
Non-salaried staff include emeritus, visiting, exchange or seconded staff, unpaid visiting fellows, members of religious denominations, conjoint, clinical and adjunct staff with a demonstrated publication association with an eligible institution. These researchers make an important contribution to the Australian university research sector and broader research community, as authors they contribute to 33 per cent of all outputs for ERA.
The proportion of outputs where one or more eligible authors are non-salaried staff is shown for two-digit FoR codes. This proportion is the greatest for the 11 Medical and Health Sciences, where non-salaried staff contributed as authors to 53 per cent of all outputs. The second highest contribution is for 05 Environmental Sciences where non-salaried staff contribute to 40 per cent of outputs.
