Two rounds enough: ERA does more harm than good
by ANDREW BONNELL The Australian October 22, 2014 12:00AM

"...after two rounds of ERA I believe the evidence is now in that the ERA is doing more harm than good. It is driving intensified managerialism, creating invidious status hierarchies between and within disciplines, and undermining collegiality. Potentially, it may also threaten academic freedom as managers seek to direct staff more and more to where to publish, and even not to publish."

Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.
