Our research community is supported to deliver research with purpose and impact through a range of state-of-the-art research facilities. These include our innovative laboratory for conducting controlled experiments and simulations in business and economics, the UNSW Business School Experimental Research Laboratory (BizLab), subscriptions to a wide range of databases and access to one of Australia’s major research libraries, UNSW Library.
BizLab is a cross-disciplinary laboratory that hosts a range of human subject experiments exploring decision making in business and economics.
The laboratory is a research-only facility that contains 48 fixed touchscreen workstations, a 20 person negotiation table with a corresponding number of laptops and movable dividers, and a private observation area. The lab also has instruments available for bio-physiological measurement. These instruments include: eye trackers that record eye movements several hundreds of times per second, EEG equipment that allows for contemporaneous skin-conductance measurement, EKG, and EEG monitoring. In addition, we have access to technology for research on virtual and augmented reality.
UNSW Library is a key resource supporting research activity at UNSW Business School. As one of Australia’s major research libraries, it offers extensive scholarly information resources, information technology and personalised services to help staff achieve their research goals. These include research consultations and appointments with Outreach Librarians.
UNSW Library also houses the Business Subject Guide, an easy to navigate list of the key business resources available from the library, sorted by specialisation area.
