Steven Hill, HEFCE’s Head of Research Policy, explores the issue of anonymous review and the next Research Excellence Framework process.
We asked Imperial College’s Professor Christopher Jackson about his experiences as a researcher and the metrics culture, and his impressions of the February 2018 event on the responsible use of metrics.
HEFCE funding from the Global Challenges Research Fund offers exciting opportunities for universities to enhance their research addressing the social and economic problems faced by developing countries.
Open access monographs will be included in the REF 2027 – but how, is very much up for discussion. Steven Hill explains.
REF 2021 will require a change in mindset to understand the approach to submissions.
A research user from industry reflects on the experience of being a main panel member in the 2014 REF exercise, and the difference the REF has made.
It is essential that we draw on international expertise throughout the REF review process.
For REF 2021, all associations or organisations that want to submit nominations for the expert panels need to provide information about equality and diversity. So what exactly do nominating bodies need to do, and why have we introduced this new process?
Now is a good time to talk about interdisciplinary research in the REF.
Partly-funded by the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund, the University of Dundee’s Discovery Centre is “tearing down disciplinary walls” to achieve translational and interdisciplinary research.
