The Future of REF – Stern Report Published

The Stern Review was published last week (full report here).  The review discusses the future of the Research Excellence Framework (REF).  How well we do in REF determines how much block funding the University gets for research. Key recommendations include a new proposal that publications are not portable, and are to be submitted by the organisation in which they were created, a much larger number of staff are to be submitted, and peer review remains the key metric.
