Codes of practice

Each HEI making a submission was required to develop, document and apply a code of practice on the fair and transparent selection of staff to be included in their REF submissions. Part 4 of 'Guidance on submissions' sets out the requirements for these codes.

HEIs were invited to submit their codes for review by the REF Equality and Diversity Advisory Panel and approval by the funding bodies, as a condition of making submissions to the REF.  

The final codes of practice for all HEIs that submitted to the REF are published below.
