Research

Our research

Violence against women and children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.

ANROWS

About ANROWS

ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.

KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

Resources

To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.

Register of Active Research

The ANROWS Register of Active Research (RAR) aims to provide a comprehensive landscape of research currently in progress in Australia that relates to domestic, family and sexual violence (DFSV). It lists research projects that are underway.

In November 2023 ANROWS released the Australian National Research Agenda (ANRA 2023–2028). The purpose of the ANRA is to direct research efforts towards addressing priority evidence gaps for policy and systems-wide practice design, nationally.

A centralised register of current research in priority research areas is an important resource for researchers who are considering projects and seeking research funding, and for research funders when assessing grant applications. The RAR is also a useful resource for researchers seeking to collaborate across jurisdictions and disciplines on future projects.


To be included in the RAR, research must be related to DFSV, have an Australian target population and be currently underway.

The value of the RAR increases with each relevant project registered. Therefore, we strongly encourage researchers to register project details as soon as practicable. 

Submitted projects will be uploaded to the RAR as soon as possible after registration.

Please note that while ANROWS encourages rigorous and ethical research, we are not able to quality assure the projects proposed for inclusion in the RAR. Inclusion in the RAR does not indicate an endorsement from ANROWS.
