KEY CHANGES TO REF2029
The three domains previously used in REF2014 and REF2021 have been retitled and have had their content and weightings adjusted to reflect their broader remits. Please note, some of the below detail is subject to change as we await further guidance on the newly proposed REF 2029 exercise:
Contribution to knowledge and understanding (50% weighting). This domain replaces the Outputs element. It will primarily assess research outputs and will also include evidence of wider contributions to the development of a discipline.
People, culture and environment (25% weighting). This domain replaces the environment element and will be expanded to assess both institutional and disciplinary level research culture.
Engagement and impact (25% weighting). This domain replaces the impact element, to consider both engagement and impact through impact case studies and an accompanying statement at disciplinary level.
