This paper addresses one of the weaknesses of many rankings – the exclusion of the
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) from university and discipline cluster ranking
systems and examines some ways in which this situation can be corrected. In particular, it
traces the development of indicators such as ‘target expanded’ citation analysis and tiering or
ranking of outlets, including books and conferences as well as journals. It draws on experience
in Australia, especially with the attempt to construct consensually derived tiered outlets for
numerous disciplines including those in HASS in the context of the introduction of a new
Research Quality Framework along the lines of similar exercises in the United Kingdom, New
Zealand, and Hong Kong.
