Terms of reference

  1. The review will investigate different approaches to the definition and evaluation of research quality, drawing on the lessons both of the 2001 RAE and of other models of research assessment, and will advise on the future of research quality evaluation.
  2. The output will be a number of models of research assessment and a short covering report to be presented to the chairmen and chief executives of the funding councils (including DEL NI). The report will either identify one preferred option or indicate the circumstances under which particular models would be most appropriate.
