Q: What counts for the REF policy?

Quickfire questions header

Q: I know that the policy for REF 2021 requires the accepted manuscript of an item to be uploaded to the Research Repository within three months of the date of acceptance but does this apply to everything that I want to submit?

A: The policy only applies to journal articles and conference papers published in proceedings with an ISSN. These items need to be uploaded to the Research Repository before the deadline.

Other items, such as book chapters, creative works, or monographs, do not need to comply with the policy in order to be eligible for the REF. We still encourage UWE Bristol researchers to add these to the Research Repository and to upload the full text whenever possible. You will need to create a record on the Research Repository in order to add the item to your REF CV in any case.

Journal articles and conference papers which were accepted for publication prior to 01 April 2016 do not need to comply with the policy – this is when the policy came into effect.
