EDAP members Raheela Khan, Fiona Ross and Tessa Parkes consider what the analysis of data from REF 2021 tells us about how people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups have been able to contribute to, and assess, research quality.
Following recent technical issues, we are pleased to announce the impact case study database is now available on the REF website. The database allows detailed searching and filtering of the impact case studies submitted as part of REF 2021. Detailed guidance on using the database and further information about the data it contains are available on our website.
