Guide to REF and Systematic Reviews

The Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) will assess the research quality of Higher Education Institutions across the UK in the period 2008 - 2013, in order that research funding can be distributed selectively on the basis of the results from 2015 onwards. Some questions have been compiled that systematic reviewers might like to consider when writing up systematic reviews and selecting outputs for REF submission.
