New and Emerging Researcher Fono (NERF) objectives:

We aim to: 

● Establish and grow a vibrant, engaged, and sustainable formal network for Emerging Researchers (ER)* in the Oceania region

● To build research capacity, and support the development of quality research, amongst emerging CIE researchers in the Oceania region

* We use the term New and Emerging Researcher to encompass research undertaken by higher degree researchers, early career researchers, and those working in academia wanting to develop a research trajectory.

Expected outcomes:

a) To strengthen research networks in the OCIES ER community;

b) To support emerging researchers to identify and describe their research niche;

c) To support emerging researchers to develop a publication plan;

d) To build capacity amongst ER to undertake peer review and editing of academic articles;

e) To publish a Special Issue of International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives in 2019, which includes articles from ER within the Oceania region
