The Research Excellent Framework 2021 team have recently published draft guidance on submissions and panel criteria, which set out the detailed proposed requirements for submissions to REF 2021. They are calling for responses on key aspects of these publications, via an online consultation. Responses to the consultation are invited from any higher education institutions, association, organisation or individual with an interest in the conduct, quality, funding or use of research. Responses should be submitted online at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/DTZ1O/ by 12 noon on 15th October 2018.
HSA would like to encourage members to whom REF2021 is relevant to participate in consultation processes taking place within their own institutions. HSA members are also invited to contact Beth Watts, HSA Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly with any urgent points they judge would impact the housing studies community as a whole. The HSA committee will come to a view about how to take forward any concerns raised by members.
