Are you hard at work on your Research Excellence Framework (REF) impact case study? Do you feel uncertain about how to convince your reviewers that the research outputs underpinning your case study are of the required quality?

Feedback from researchers tells me that lots of people struggle with this. This is something I often discuss at impact workshops I am leading or 1-2-1 sessions I have with case study authors.

In this video podcast I explain the quality of the outputs required and the types of evidence needed to convince the reviewers.

I explain this in the context of each of the main panels as the guidance is slightly different for each of them.
