The Use of Bibliometrics to Measure Research Quality in UK Higher Education Institutions. Research Report
Universities UK
In December 2006 the Government announced that a new framework for assessing and funding university research would be introduced following the completion of the next research assessment exercise in 2008. The sector has welcomed the key features of the announcement, which includes the creation of a new UK-wide indicator of research quality. The intention is that the new framework should produce an overall "rating" or "profile" of research quality for broad subject groups at each higher education institution. (Contains 13 figures, 3 tables, and 25 notes.)
