  • Function / Content
    This series consists of extracts of two types of documents - written submissions and community consultation records - which were utilised by the research staff during the life of the Royal Commission into Family Violence (RCFV) from 2015-2016. These records were used to help develop the Final Report (VPRS 18248).

    During the Royal Commission, research staff would perform analysis on documents including the submissions and community consultation records to help inform the Final Report. To perform this work, researchers utilised a database which allowed them to highlight, collate and report on documents against a set of pre-determined issues.

    This series contains extracts only, and does not contain complete documents.The records in this series provide evidence of how submissions fed into the particular RCFV issues.

    Note - some records may have been subject to an order to suppress the identity of an individual or individuals mentioned in the records, however it hasn't been possible to identify these on an individual basis. Additionally some submissions in this series have been redacted.

    For more detailed series containing written submissions and community consultation records, see:

    - VPRS 18230 Community Consultation and Engagement Records [Administrative and Investigative Records Collection]
    - VPRS 18241 Submissions [Published]
    - VPRS 18228 Submissions [Legal Discovery / Case Management System] (unredacted)

  • Recordkeeping System
    The records were stored and accessed by research staff via NVivo - a qualitative data analysis application designed for rich text and multimedia information. Note that NVivo was not the main 'document store' for the RCFV, but rather other systems Ringtail and Microsoft SharePoint were. This series contains extracts only of submissions and community consultations. See VPRS 18230, VPRS 18241 and VPRS 18228 for more detailed series containing written submissions and community consultation records.

    Documents were arranged by 147 x RCFV issues (known as nodes) then by hierarchical names. In this series, the 147 nodes have been condensed into 22 x 'binder' PDF (Portable Document Format) documents. Each binder PDF is a combination of all JPG images for that node, and have been converted via optical character recognition (OCR), hence are text searchable within this series.
