  • the number of peer-reviewed journal publications and conference papers produced by staff and postgraduate students
  • the throughput and quality of postgraduate students
  • income generated through scholarly grants and contract funding
  • the registration of intellectual property in the form of patents
  • and the recognition of the research standing of staff, both by peers and other higher education institutions
