SCIENTIFIC research conducted by Southern Cross University in six areas has been given the highest possible classification of 'well above world standard' in a national report released today.

The top rating for 'well above world standard' was given in the specific research fields of geochemistry, zoology, crop and pasture production, and forestry sciences in the annual Excellence in Research for Australia report.

In the broader research fields, the university received the top rating in earth sciences, and agricultural and veterinary sciences.

This places the university among the top two universities in the country for research in crop and pasture production, in the top three universities in the country for zoology, top four in agriculture and veterinary sciences and forestry sciences, and in the top five in the field of geochemistry and earth sciences.

Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Lee said these were outstanding results for Southern Cross University, and indicated the depth of its research capacity across a diverse range of areas.

"This is a tremendous result and I congratulate all the researchers and support staff who have contributed to this success," Professor Lee said.

The results follow the University being categorised as 'research intensive' earlier this year.
