Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research Professor James McLaren said it was an important acknowledgement of the University.
“Top-cited researchers reflect our rapidly rising research trajectory and demonstrate the exceptional contribution these scholars are making to their fields,” he said.
“Our rich research culture informs our teaching – to the benefit of our students and the wider community – and these individuals exemplify that excellence.”
World-class researchers at ACU’s seven research institutes are committed to developing research expertise in the University’s priority areas of education, health, theology and philosophy and social justice.
