Bath selected for Research Excellence Framework pilot

The University has been selected as one of 22 institutions nationwide to take part in HEFCE’s Research Excellence Framework pilot project.

The pilot will test the bibliometric techniques that will underpin HEFCE’s new approach to research assessment and funding.

Further details are available on the HEFCE website (See Related Links section).

In the coming months the University’s central publication record will be updated to capture full details of all academic publications by University staff in the period January 2001 to the present. It is anticipated that much of this information will have been collected by PIP in the course of preparations for the RAE 2008.

Departments will be contacted shortly with details of how the remaining data are to be collected and how they will be used by HEFCE to test the proposed REF mechanism.

The project will be overseen by Diana Newport-Peace in the Office of Policy & Planning and Kara Jones in the Library. We look forward to working with you.
