Final REF Criteria Published

The final versions of the REF Panel Criteria and Working Methods were published yesterday, and are available here.

Highlights include:
  • outputs pre-published in 2007 may be submitted as long as they were not submitted to RAE2008
  • the number of outputs required of ECRs remains as in the draft criteria
  • a new tariff has been introduced for the number of outputs required of staff who work part-time, go on secondment or have career breaks
  • working methods are now common across the whole exercise; not distinguished by panel
  • a reduction of one output per period of statutory maternity or adoption leave is allowed, with no minimum qualifying period
  • a reduction of one output per period of ‘additional paternity or adoption leave’ lasting 4 months or more.
Thanks to my colleague Clair Thrower for looking at the criteria and picking out these points. If you have specific questions about this do drop her a line.
