Research Excellence Framework team confirms a number of proposed reforms are to be implemented

The next Research Excellence Framework has been pushed back from 2028 to 2029, it has been announced.

In a “next steps” document published on 7 December, the REF team said there is to be a delay to the exercise to resolve several issues, including the implementation of plans to fully break the link between individual staff and institutional submissions.

Other challenges that require more time to resolve include the preparations for using Higher Education Statistics Agency data to determine REF volume measures and the reworking of institutional codes of practice.

The results will now be published in December 2029, with an updated timeline to be published “as soon as possible”, the REF team said.
