Letter: Feel the quality, not the volume 4

January 25, 2002

The Lancaster vice-chancellor and his colleagues are right that it is almost impossible to calculate an accurate league table of RAE performance in the face of the strategic non-submission of active researchers.

Rather than worrying about the league tables, however, we should concentrate on trying to reform the RAE so that universities have no reason not to return every active researcher in the country - to the great benefit of those now excluded.
