Quiz: True or False? Take a moment to look at the following statements, and discuss with your groups. Which are true, and which are false? • Normally, as the REF covers six years (2008-2013), each researcher must submit six outputs. • ‘Designated Staff’ are those people we will submit to the REF. • External reviewers do not tell us which staff we should and should not submit. • Decisions on what circumstances allow legitimate reductions in outputs will be made by HR Services. • Dates of birth of staff selected for submission to the REF will only be seen by staff in RDCS. • Staff can appeal against non-selection on the grounds of quality if they can present new and compelling evidence. • Staff who join us after 15 July 2013 can’t be submitted to the 2014 REF.
