Dear sigmetrics readers,
HEFCE have published a report <http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/rereports/Year/2016/refimpact/Title,108841,en.html> produced by Digital Science that analyses data from the UK’s historical research assessment exercises.
For 30 years, outputs published by UK researchers have been submitted for cyclical assessment by peer panels, creating a unique longitudinal dataset. This report is the first to describe analyses of all publications submitted for assessment between 1988 and 2013. It covers 921,254 submitted outputs and 36,244 impact case study references across 25 years, five assessment cycles and both academic impact and economic/societal impact. The report identifies patterns in these data but, as this is the first publication of such analysis, interpretation is intentionally reserved pending wider discussion.
We welcome discussion on this.
