Stern review: submit all researchers to next REF | Times Higher Education (THE)

“The report adds that the weighting for outputs in the REF should stay at 65 per cent, and impact should continue to account for “not…less than 20 per cent”. 

It also recommends that assessment continue to be done primarily on the basis of peer review, but “metrics should be provided to support panel members in their assessment, and panels should be transparent about their use”.”
