What is AIRR?

The ANZCA Institutional Research Repository (AIRR) has been developed to collect, preserve and promote the significant amount of important research published by college fellows and trainees.

AIRR is an institutional repository that identifies, captures, stores and facilitates retrieval of the research and publication output of the college and the wider ANZCA community (such as non-funded Fellows, trainees and staff) for the collaborative benefit of local and global clinicians, researchers and health educators. It is possible for fellows and trainees to register as a user, and once authorised, self-submit their research publications and outcomes. The repository provides a single point of access for current and comprehensive research outcomes and a portfolio for college researchers/authors on an international scale.

The Library – working in conjunction with the ANZCA Research Foundation, the Faculty of Pain Management and the Emerging Investigators Subcommittee – has completed an initial ingest of data including the most recent ANZCA Research Foundation’s publication and grant outcomes.

We are also actively seeking researchers, who would like to register and start contributing their publications through self-submission; help set-up an author profile; or provide comment/feedback.


  • 3 collections:
    • Scholarly and Clinical > ANZCA and FPM-related publications and outcomes
    • Corporate > ANZCA reports and professional documents
    • ANZCA author profiles > key author information, background information and photos
  • Self-submission capability for article content and author profiles
  • Persistent links for all content (both articles and author profiles) – for example:
  • Search and filter research outcomes by author, year, subject/keyword, etc
  • Recent submissions list
  • Author profiles – for an example: (Prof. Kate Leslie)
  • Content discoverable (harvested) by search engines such as Google and Trove
