Sample text

There was some disagreement between groups about whether panels should include the users of research: with three group suggesting they should; one group was firmly against including research users; and one suggested a preference for peers over nonpeers. Eight groups felt that panels needed to be less subject introverted and 33 suggested that panels should include members from other subject panels or lay members. Seven groups noted that the chairing of panels needed special attention and suggested that chairs could be appointed from different disciplines as this could provide more comparability between panels and prevent issues of subject self interest.

Evaluation Criteria (Mentioned in systems 4, 5, 6, 17, 18, 19 & 29) A number of groups clarified what should be considered as research excellence by suggesting criteria that should be used for evaluating submissions. The most common criterion, flagged up by four groups, was research strategy. Two groups noted that the quality of outputs should be assessed and another two suggested that an indicator for value for money, or return on investment, needed to be developed. Evaluating research culture, and how institutions nurture and develop research staff was mentioned by two groups, and one of these wanted to develop metrics to allow easy assessment of this area.

One other group identified the emergence of a two-tier system as an undesirable outcome of any research assessment system. Non Subject Based Units of Assessment (Mentioned in system 19) It was suggested by one group that the conventional approach of subject based UoAs be radically restructured and replaced with a system in which research was grouped according to its type of outputs. Four different over arching Areas of Assessment (AoAs) were identified: Formal Sciences, that produce theorems; Explanatory Sciences, that produce laws; Design Sciences, that produce technological rules and Human Sciences that produce artefacts and knowledge.
