REF & Bibliometrics

HEFCE have recently published: “Interim report of the REF bibliometrics pilot exercise”.  The full report is due out Autumn 2009, but this makes interesting reading. It looks at possible models, and some of the limitations of using bibliometrics. It would seem that the REF Expert Advisory Groups see bibliometrics more as a “useful aid to expert review”, and that this might vary according to the discipline.
