The REF Support plugin, derived from the REF2014 plugin, has been designed to support REF2021 submissions.

This plugin provides the following key features:

  • New Units of Assessment for REF2021.
  • Benchmarks – ability to conduct one or more trial runs of your submission as well as the final run.
  • Assign UoA Champions – assign champions to oversee allocated units so they can check and verify submissions as well as submit on behalf of others.
  • REF1 Profile Information – create an enhanced profile to generate the REF1 report.
  • Identify REF2 Outputs – individual staff taking part in the REF submission may select their outputs for submission, providing additional key information for the panel to consider.
  • REF CC integration – the compliance indicator from the REF Compliance Checker is shown when selecting outputs.
  • Record REF4 Data – store data about degrees awarded and research income for each unit of assessment.
