Research

Our research

Violence against women and their 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 violence against women and their children. It lists research projects that are underway.

In October 2020 ANROWS released Australia’s National Research Agenda to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children (ANRA 2020–2022). The purpose of ANRA is to direct research efforts towards addressing priority evidence gaps for policy and systems-wide practice design, nationally. It includes, where known, reference to research underway in priority areas as part of Appendix B.

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 violence against women and children, have an Australian target population and be currently underway. 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.

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.
