Editor —Williams attacked the United Kingdom’s research assessment exercise as misleading, unscientific, and unjust. He did not mention one of its most unjust aspects: that submissions have to be prepared for a game in which the rules are unknown.

Firstly, the published rules are unworkable. In a submission, research is divided into subareas of activity, to be decided by the Cited by: The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) is part of the UGC's commitment to assessing the performance of the UGC-funded universities and is intended to encourage world-class research and drive excellence.

Consequently, the effects on authority relations there are likely to be more profound than in many other European states. This chapter first looks at the historical background to the introduction of the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), and then examines the.

When I first heard about research assessment I thought it was barmy for the obvious reason that one’s assessment would entirely depend on whether one’s friends or enemies were doing the assessing. I thought of reviews of my own books, the verdicts of which (on the same book) varied from “state of the art” to “complete rubbish”.

Each output was. The UK research assessment exercise (RAE) was explored for units of assessment (UoA) 10 (Nursing) and 11 (Other Studies and Professions Allied to Medicine). In nursing funding was the best predictor of high RAE ratings. Other factors that appear relevant are numbers of doctorates awarded and publications in prestigious journals and in.

The Research Excellence Framework is the successor to the Research Assessment is an impact evaluation which assesses the research of British higher education institutions. It was first used in to assess the period – REF is undertaken by the four UK higher education funding bodies: Research England, the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), the Higher Education Funding.

The Research Assessment Exercise was conducted jointly by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (), the Scottish Funding Council (), Research assessment exercise book Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and the Department for Employment and Learning, Northern Ireland ().The primary purpose of the RAE was to produce quality profiles for each submission of research activity made by institutions.

The UK’s exercise for assessing research excellence in universities, the Research Excellence Framework (REF), recommences on 31 July This follows a four-month pause due to COVID The recommencement is accompanied by new guidance, describing revisions to the exercise made in view of the altered timetable and to mitigate the effects of.

The RAE will assess research outputs, impact and. The VQR research assessment exercise for a certain university R can be naturally modeled as an allocation game 〈 R, G, products, val, 2 〉 where R is the set of researchers affiliated with R, G is the set of all publications produced by the researchers in R, products maps authors to the set of publications they have written, and val assigns.

Research assessment exercises have enjoyed ever-increasing popularity in many countries in recent years, both as a method to guide public funds allocation and as a validation tool for adopted research support policies. Italy’s most recently completed evaluation effort (VQR –14) required each university to submit to the Ministry for Education, University, and Research (MIUR) 2 research.

This article examines how the UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), along with the development of performance indicators, fits into the production of research within a changing policy context. The historical evolution of the RAE from – is considered, before looking specifically at how research output (in the form of journal.

The importance of the exercise. In the research assessment exercise each “unit of assessment” in each university was graded from 1 (research of little consequence) to 5 (research of international renown) and 5* (outstanding).1 In the “hospital based clinical medicine” unit of assessment (which includes all mainstream medical and surgical specialties) a grade 5* was awarded to two.

The research assessment exercise has been progressively refined over several exercises, and it will be interesting to see the results of the refinements for in the clinical medicine units of assessment. Of particular importance to the future will be the way that the sub-panels work and how they affect the final rating for a unit of assessment.

Research Assessment Exercise RAE Finnish universities are legally obligated to assess their research.

An evaluation of the research is carried out regularly. In the assessment of research, universities use international scientific peer review and bibliometric analyses (for example on the impact and quality of publication activities).

UK Research Assessment Exercise Prior tofunding for research in British universities was built into expenditures per student. This was based on the assumption that all academics were engaged in research and scholarship as part of their role as academics.

1 Introduction. Previous research (Harley and Lee, ; Lee and Harley, ) on the impact of the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) on heterodox economics and heterodox economists in the UK arrived at a discouraging set of conclusions and ically, through the economics panelists reliance on Diamond List journals to rank departments, we concluded that the RAE would continue.

Considering the recently concluded Research Excellence Framework (REF)the UK’s national research assessment exercise, as a case study offers a chance to answer the question and also an opportunity for other research intensive countries to compare their performance-based research funding.

The ratings are used to inform the allocation of funds and to promote high quality in research. The use of peer review within both the scholarly communication system and the UK’s Research Assessment Exercise is reviewed.
