The term e-Research (alternately spelled eResearch ) refers to the use of information technology to support existing and new forms of research. E-research extends e-Science and cyberinfrastructure to other disciplines, including humanities and social sciences.
Examples of e-Research problems
- Modelling of ecosystems or economies
- Exploration of human genome structures
- Studies of broad linguistic corpora
- Integrated social policy analyzes
Principle features of e-Research include:
- Collaboration 
- The use of grid-computing technologies
- Data-intensive activity
E-Research includes research activities that use a spectrum of advanced information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities. It embraces new research methodologies emerging from increasing access to:
Specialist services, centers or programs instituted to support Australian data and technology intensive research work under the umbrella term: eResearch. In March 2012, representatives from these eResearch groups came together to discuss the need for a collaborative program to strengthen eResearch and address issues facing the nationally sector.  The Australian eResearch Organization (AeRO) emerges from this forum as a collaborative organization of national and state-based research organizations to advance eResearch implementation and innovation in Australia.  Professionals working in Australian eResearch annually agreed to a conference known as: eResearch Australasia.
