REF2021 – Draft Code of Practice

The Code of Practice is a vital document for the University’s REF 2021 submission.  It is a requirement that all institutions submit a Code of Practice outlining the process of defining Researchers and selecting outputs and showing that the university supports equality and diversity in the REF.

We have now drafted the University’s Code of Practice and are inviting all staff to comment from 1 – 21 May 2019.

Following the consultation, any revisions will then be made and the Code of Practice will be submitted to the REF on 7 June for final approval.

For this REF cycle the University intends to submit 100% of eligible staff defined as those on teaching and research (T&R) contracts and some research only contracts.  The criteria for selection will be outlined in the Code of Practice.

You are invited to review the REF2021 Draft Code of Practice webpage for full details.
