Are you a geographer working in the academic sector?
An important consultation on the Research Excellence Framework (REF) for 2021 is now open for comment and the Society would value your input to help inform our response.
The REF is the UK’s system for assessing the quality of research at higher education institutions and is conducted through a process of expert review by a panel of specialists. The UK’s four higher education funding bodies have published a draft guidance and criteria document for making submissions to REF 2021. The final document will be published in early 2019 outlining the submission process to the REF and how the panel will assess those submissions.
If you’re a geographer working in the academic sector, please send your comments on the draft document to Dr Catherine Souch by 19 September to help us inform our response to it.
If you want to find out more about REF 2021 and the proposals that have been laid out in the consultation document, you are welcome to attend one of two events we are hosting:
