The rules for the UK’s next research excellence framework are finally in place, after a year of consultation.

The assessment, which will be published in 2021, will be used to determine the allocation of quality-related research funding, and will play a key role in forming the academic reputations of universities and their departments.

Alex Bearman appears in Times Higher Education discussing the rule changes to the research excellency framework in 2021. 

REF 2021: what are the rules and how will they work? is available to read on the Times Higher Education website.
