2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) – results out today

The results and analysis of the outcomes of the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise are published in the Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) today and make fascinating reading. The online version of the THES has a general overview of the outcomes for universities, an institutional ranking table and commentary, a subject rankings table, a lead editorial, and a commentary by David Eastwood (Chief Executive of HEFCE – the Higher Education Funding Council for England).

In Library and Information Management, the subject I have closest links to, I was pleased to see the THES rankings as (1) Sheffield University (2) King’s College London (digital humanities), and (3) University College London (SLAIS) – all excellent results – congratulations to all.
