Four ECU researchers have been recognised by The Australian newspaper's special report on Australian university research recognising the University's growing increasing profile across a number of fields.

ECU researchers from the Schools of Business and Law, Engineering and WAAPA featured in four separate disciplines.

The special report highlights lifetime and early achievers, and individual and institutional leaders across 250 different research fields, divided into eight broad discipline areas.

Researchers are measured by the number of publications and citations against other high-performing researchers in their fields.
