Research at the School of Information Management
The School of Information Management has a strong, vibrant research culture. We aim to produce research of the highest standard that is cutting edge and of value to both fellow researchers and practitioners.
Our stakeholders include both private and public sector organisations, along with individuals and communities involved in information management practices and pursuits.
Research at SIM covers the complementary and interlocking areas of information systems, e-commerce, library and information science, archives and records management, communications, and knowledge and information management.
Our MA, MCom and PhD students are a multi-cultural group contributing to the diversity of interests and work carried out within the School. Check out the profiles for each student carrying out a research-based degree, with a brief biography, an outline of their thesis/dissertation topic, and related information on their interests, teaching, and other work.
Note: The Faculty of Graduate Research (FGR) provides the first port of call for all students interested in enrolling in a PhD at Victoria.
In order to streamline the process of reviewing human ethics applications for researchers, the School has established its own Human Ethics Committee (HEC).
All applications should be sent to the HEC Administrator, Nicole Green, who can be contacted by:
Phone: 04 463 5384
Important: if you are a research student (MIM, MIS, MCA, or PhD), you are required to discuss your application with your supervisor first, and then your supervisor must submit the application on your behalf. HEC applications will not be accepted from research students directly.Further details and documentation are available here.
