Research Review Exercise

The 2016/2017 Research Review Exercise (RRE) will launch on Monday 9th January and will close on the 30th January 2017 at midnight.

You will undertake the RRE using Pure. This is an annual mandatory exercise for all REF-eligible staff. The RRE consists of peer review of outputs, providing grades for the quality of key individual research outputs published since 1st January 2014.

The Criteria and Working Methods document can be accessed here.

What happens when the exercise is closed?

A snapshot of the data in Pure will be taken on the morning of the 31st January 2017 and will be reviewed by appointed reviewers within your School. The scores will be published in Pure by the 4th June 2017 and Schools will make arrangements for providing feedback requested.
