So much, by so many, for so little

January 10, 1997

THE GRAPHS (THES, December 20) in the "at a glance guide", does not show the University of Portsmouth's "5" research rating in Russian, Slavonic and East European languages. In the HEFCE Circular, you will see that the table at the foot of page 151 does show a 0 per cent level for rating 5. While the small total of staff assessed in this research area made the percentage of academic staff figure statistically insignificant, the fact that we were awarded a "5" rating was significant.
