Research Strategy and Reports

The Australian Museum's research scientists have been making substantial contributions to the knowledge about nature and culture. Our key research goals are manifested in the Research Strategy 2007-2012, while our annual Research Report provides an overview about targeting these goals, and all information related to our scientist's work.

Research Strategy 2007-2012

The Science Research Strategy 2007-2012 provides a framework for research at the Australian Museum by balancing the Museum's existing research and collections strengths with emerging issues and priorities. The Strategy sets out the Museum's science research priorities for the next five years, including strategies and activities to address those priorities, which includes allowing individual researchers to have a degree of freedom in the development of their research directions to make best use of their expertise and knowledge. In developing the Strategy, the Museum's vision, purpose, context, research strengths and capabilities have been taken into account, as have both state and national priorities.

Research Reports

Evidence of excellence in science & research: Each year the Australian Museum publishes the Research Report to provide well-founded information about our research activities and outcomes, aligned with the Research Strategy 2007-2012.
