The REF 2014 Update

HEFCE now has an updated page with the final criteria and working methods that the Research Excellence Framework (REF) panels will use when assessing research. REF panel criteria....

"Publication of this information, by the REF team on behalf of the four UK higher education funding bodies, is a key stage in preparations for the REF. Through the REF, the quality of research in all UK Universities and higher education colleges will be assessed, and the results will be used by the UK funding bodies to allocate research funding.
Universities and higher education colleges will be invited to submit their highest quality research in 36 subject groupings called units of assessment (UOAs). The submissions will be assessed by an expert sub-panel for each UOA, working under the leadership and guidance of four main panels. This guidance sets out how each of the main panels and sub-panels will operate and the criteria they will apply." (HEFCE 2012)
