Description

Maximise your REF-readiness

Research quality assessment is a prominent feature of the UK research landscape; it influences many activities within universities and can play a significant part in individual academic career choices. Whilst a Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment might only occur every six or seven years, the individual components it assesses reflect inherent facets of everyday life as a University academic.

In the absence of precise details about the next REF, this session will use the framework adopted for REF2014 to consider what excellence means or looks like for each of the main pillars of the assessment. Come prepared to evaluate your research presence, and to leave empowered to maximise your readiness for the next REF.

This session is for you if:
  • You are aspiring to be ‘REF submittable’
  • You want to evaluate your potential to contribute to a future REF submission
  • You want to understand the quality expectations of the REF (what do top rated journal articles and impact case studies look like?)
Key features of the session:
  • Consider what it means for research outputs to show ‘originality, significance and rigour’
  • Evaluate your potential to contribute to a future REF submission
  • Consider the importance of career planning in relation to REF
