This micro-site was originally set up for analysis of REF2014. However, I hope parts of it, especially the description of the REF2014 output assessment process and FAQ will be useful for those planning for REF2021 and beyond (I’m sure there will be a REF2028!).
Although I am to be a member of REF2021 SP11 I am not yet actively part of the process. There is a small group looking at criteria setting, but as I am not part of that process I am not party to any confidential information about REF2021. This advice is therefore based solely on REF2014 experience.
- Preparing 100 words for an output
- Writing abstracts not just for REF
- Internal review
- Impact research and double jeopardy
- Impact and environment best practice
