University Research Excellence Framework 2014 – the full rankings

The Research Excellence Framework (Ref) is a quality measure of universities’ academic work, which will decide how much funding they receive for the next six years. Funding experts Research Fortnight created ‘power rankings’ based on how they assessed each university.

Research Fortnight weighted the figures by staff numbers and then created the following metrics:
Quality Index: a weighting of the university’s score based on the expected funding allocation (75% to 4* research and 25% to 3*)
Power rating: how the university’s Quality Index score relates to the top performing university – in this case Oxford
Market share: how much Research Fortnight predicts the university will get of the overall available funding next year based on its results
