Over 52,000 staff submitted to REF

Institutions have submitted research from 52,077 academics to the Research Excellence Framework -- just 324 fewer than were put forward in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, higher education funding councils have announced.

All 155 institutions intending to participate in the REF successfully made their submissions by the 29 November deadline. The outcomes of the assessments by REF panels will be published in December 2014.
