We have received a question from a Professor in Romania why WSEAS does not participate in an Australian Index with the name ERA

WSEAS Services contacted ERA and we got the information that ERA is not an Index.


See their email below. It seems that the Australian Research Council (ARC) is a statutory authority under the Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (IISRTE) portfolio within the Australian Government.




The ERA Journal List has been developed solely for the purposes of the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative and it is not an index

Dear Eftychia,


Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, we are not able to assist with your request.


The Australian Research Council (ARC) is a statutory authority under the Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (IISRTE) portfolio within the Australian Government. Its mission is to deliver policy and programs that advance Australian research and innovation globally and benefit the community.


In seeking to achieve its mission, the ARC provides advice to the Government on research matters, manages the National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP), and administers the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative.


The agreement between the ARC and Scopus relates specifically to the ERA initiative. The Scopus EID tagging service mentioned on the ARC website was available only to Australian higher education institutions to match journal articles to existing Scopus EIDs for the purposes of their ERA submissions.


You may wish to contact Scopus directly.


Kind regards,


ERA Team
