REF2021 code of practice


June 25th, 2019

It is a requirement that every institution making a Research Excellence Framework (REF) submission needs to develop, document and apply a code of practice for REF2021, including:

  • the fair and transparent identification of staff with significant responsibility for research where a higher education institute (HEI) is not submitting 100% of eligible staff
  • determining who is an independent researcher
  • the selection of research outputs, including approaches to supporting staff with circumstances

The University of Nottingham developed our REF code of practice through a consultative process and submitted it to Research England on Friday 7 June 2019.

The University has decided to return 100% of eligible Category A staff to REF2021 and therefore identification of staff with significant responsibility for research does not form part of our REF2021 code.

Invitations for voluntary declaration of personal circumstances will be sent out during the week commencing Monday 24 June 2019.
