Development Studies has been established as a Field of Research in the revised Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC 2020).
DSAA in collaboration with The Aotearoa New Zealand International Development Studies Network (DevNet) put in a submission for inclusion of a Development Studies FoR, and after an extensive review/consultation process, the new FoR codes for Development Studies have been finalised. We thank the ANZSRC for recognition of Development Studies as an interdisciplinary field of research and scholarship, built on a rich body of theory. A full list of the FoR codes can be found on the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
