The Research Outputs Collection (ROC) is the annual reporting of both traditional and non-traditional research outputs generated by CSU staff and students. Submission of 2017 outputs needs to be made by no later than Monday 2nd April, 2018 to allow for timely processing and verification. During the course of verification, you may be contacted and asked to provide additional supporting materials.

This calculation is made as part of the verification process.
