Dear FOI Contact Officer

Request under the Freedom of Information Act
In re documents relating to the 2010 ERA round
------------------------------------------------------

I request a copy of the spreadsheet document that was, I think, entitled ERA_journal_list.xls containing a list (nominally a "final list") of approximately 9000 journals, each together with its corresponding ERA identifier, rank, areas of research and ISSN information. Unfortunately, I cannot find the list on the Australian Research Council website despite locating other material relating to the 2010 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).

It would be convenient to receive the document as it was originally created, in Microsoft Excel form, but in any other format (including scanned PDF) I will be able to render it rapidly into spreadsheet form.

If there is any additional information that you need to locate the relevant document, please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Mark R. Diamond

I had some trouble opening the Excel 2003 formatted workbook that was sent by the Australian Research Council. Whether that is because the file is damaged, or simply because Microsoft Office 2010 does not work well in its "compatibility mode", I do not know. In any case, I managed to convert the file to OpenDocument Spreadsheet format (.ods) using LibreOffice and have sent a copy of the .ods file to the Right to Know administrators. I hope that they will upload it to this web page.

Many thanks to Mark for getting in touch with us about this request and sending us through his fixed spreadsheet.

I didn't have any problem opening it but in any case I've converted it to a more standard format (CSV) and uploaded it to Datahub (http://datahub.io/dataset/excellence-in-... where you can also do fancy things like previewing it (http://datahub.io/dataset/excellence-in-....

Cheers,
