AIRR | ANZCA Institutional Research Repository: Overview

This guide has been designed for ANZCA and FPM researchers utilising AIRR | ANZCA Institutional Research Repository.

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, create a researcher profile 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.


  • 2 collections:
    • Scholarly and Clinical - ANZCA, FPM and CTN-related publications and outcomes
    • Corporate - ANZCA reports and professional documents
  • Researcher profiles - key researcher information, background information, publications, grants, links and photos [NEW]
  • ANZCA grants - full details of published ANZCA grants plus associated researchers and publications [NEW]

  • Search and filter research outcomes by author, year, subject/keyword, etc
  • Recent submissions list
  • Content discoverable (harvested) by search engines such as Google and Trove
